Approach – Descend SOB Gully and head for the Painted Wall. Enter the gully between the Northern aręte of the Painted Wall and the Porcelain aręte Buttress. Ascend for 200-300 ft on 3rd class until it is possible to traverse the Porcelain Aręte Buttress on third class. Traverse to the East side of the buttress and locate the right-most (most north east) bushy dihedral.

P1 – 230 ‘ Follow bushy left facing dihedral up the aręte surmounting small roof in process. Belay on nice ledge. (5.7+)

P2 – 230’ Instead of heading into the left facing dihedral as for the Porcelain aręte, head up and right into the right facing dihedral. Step left under obvius crack to belay. (5.7+)

P3 – 110’ Continue up loose “limestone” crack surmounting small roof. Belay directly on the aręte. (5.9-)

P4 – Make improbable moves over aręte to regain R side of the aręte. (5.9+/10-)

P5-9 are almost entirely on the north east face of the Porcelain Arete buttress.

P5 – 230’ - Head out right along 3-4” crack making hand traverse into an offwidth. Belay on top of pillar on East side of the buttress. (5.8-)

P6 – Face climbing directly up from P5 belay leads to a ramp leading up and right. On top of ramp dicey free climbing leads to belay ledge. (5.10R)

P7 – 220’ Head right along ledge to offwidth. Belay at top of offwidth. Classic (5.8-)

P8 – Head up broken rock to base of first large pillar on the Porcelain aręte buttress. (5.7)

P9 – Continue on left side of pegmatite tower, find belay in large blocks. (5.6-5.7)

P10/11 – Continue up easy 5th to summit.

Descent – Follow the Painted Wall trail back to camp.
