Description

Go up the West Ridge past The Cirque of the Cracks. As the trail flattens out, just before reaching the Xanadu area, there is a very small, short section of reasonably solid rock. (See picture) Kashmir is a thin seam & crack that goes for 30' to a large tree, from which you can rappel or find a walk-off. (As of 1/16/19 - this needs new webbing). Likewise, one can continue above up the acute dihedral to the top at ~5.10a.

Protection

The protection is reasonable, if placed in the crack and to the left of the crack. Small cams and nuts are the primary gear. The route is short and will only require 3-5 placements.
