As near as we could tell, this is the route high above on the face.  
To the right of the pictured wide crack, just right of the edge of this pic, is an overhanging splitter that diagonals up and right, continuing around the rounded buttress to the rim. On Sept. 12. 1981, Steve Sarns led the overhanging splitter, using clean aid. I followed mostly free. Our splitter began fist-ish and narrowed before turning the corner, but nowhere on our climb was any wide gear necessary. I don't know which crack George and Anne climbed. If they used tubes, I suspect they did the crack in this photo and not the one Steve and I did. Dec 29, 2011
