Description 

Follow the directions as for the West face route. Once at the base of the blocky dihedral climb up. The first 2/3 of the dihedral is somewhat lose but easy. Once you reach the final third you have a couple of choices:

The class 3 option heads left (North) until it reaches the North arete and then romps up to the summit block.

The 5.2 option climbs up to a headwall under a roof, and then traverses right (south) under the roof and up the south side to the very summit. This is fun, exposed and very well protected.

Descent - Downclimb East then south and finally West onto the trail
