start on a small rock ledge moving up the right hand side of the obvious arete splitting the cliff, follow cracks and corners up the line of least resistance to the top (gear anchor) for a spicier variation stay a proper to the arete as you can (5.7+)

A really nice easy climb. The walk off is harder than the route-any rap bolts yet ?

There are some bolts at the top that are good enough to rap off. I think this would be a good place for IMCS or some of the local guide community to put 2 sets of summit-bolts because of use. One set at the top of the Trunk route and one set at the top of the cheek. This way the second set would be good for TRs and a rap to packs.

I dont really feel like its so much of an issue to place bolts for top anchors on this route, for the left variant there is a bomber 1/2 inch bolt with a rap link to get down. The trunk has a perfect crack for gear at the top of the route. This is a very popular view point with a low commitment hike to the top for tourists sets of bolt anchors detract from the natural feel of the top of the notch.
