The line marked for the alternate approach goes up to the bridge and back down to the start. Another approach from Rocky Gap road actually goes below the large wall to the right of the red line. Oct 16, 2014

I thought that photo looked familiar, George. I got pointed at this route by Jim Olsen, the great Tetons guide. Jim soloed the route and paraglided off the summit. I climbed it with Inez "Gnar Gnar" Drixelius by the marked line. I think Jim told me the FA was Richard Harrison, PVB and another partner. The approach from the east is amazing once you've endured the grind to the red band. The traverse in the shadowed middle portion of the photo is surreal.

Inez and I were cold on the upper mountain so after P1 we simued the easier parts above. I'd done the west side route in advance because I thought it might be too complex to try to decipher on-sight and I'm glad I did. The west side is a phenomenal route on its own. 1 day ago
