Fantastic route up the enormous hanging prow feature at the right end of Shagg. Scramble up easy ledges to a belay ledge and chain anchors. Steep climbing leads to a technical crux then more thin climbing to a heart-breaking finishing crux. FA: Nate Kimble

15 pitches over 20'? Better save this for late June when the days are longest. Does anyone with experience on this route know if there is a midpoint bivy ledge?
