Description 

Start on the nose of a short arete, and climb up and right past a crack to a stance in a short chimney, then make your way up the slightly overhanging, multi-colored face above to the 3rd good horizontal. Step right and work up past a small left-facing corner (crux) to the top.

Harder than it looks from the base, but excellent climbing. The original route stayed 3-4 feet left of the corner.

Walk off via the Uberfall Descent.

Location 

On a high, steep face just right of Rhododendron.

Protection 

PG. Standard Gunks rack with extras of small cams.

Thin, sustained face climbing. Sometimes hard to protect. Walk off the uberfall descent. Good climb, rarely occupied.

Fun route that climbs better than it looks from the ground. Small offset cams will get used if you bring 'em.
