By many accounts, the best route at MST.

Start, down low on the left. Turn the arete to the right and climb the right side of the arete to a steep face. Awkward side-pulling marks the pumpy crux of the route at mid-height.


5 bolts. 2 bolt anchor with chains.

Did this route yesterday and it was fun. One thing to note is 2nd bolt is marked with an X due to it being placed apparently on a somewhat hallow rock. Taking a big fall on 2nd bolt seemed sketch. Still worth trying the climb!

You're right. That bolt is in some bad rock, if you tap the surrounding rock with a hammer you'll hear how hollow it is. I scratched the X there to warn anyone who wishes to lead it..
