DescriptionThis could be an alpine slabber's paradise. This 3rd Apron from the left is probably the lowest angled one of the bunch but is the smoothest as well. It requires a 25-30 minute approach from Summit Lake parking area.
P1. This is starts near what appears to be a rounded arete on the right side of the Apron. Fire up 80 feet of low-angled rock without protection until you gain a thin crack (5.7) that takes wires & small cams to a nice ledge, 150 feet.
P2. Go up and left to a shallow, left-facing dihedral, then left to a right-facing dihedral and friction (5.7) up to a small stance, 140 feet. #5, 6? hexes are useful for belay.
P3. Friction up 5.7 with little pro (psychological crux) and move right to an angling stance, 150 feet. A #2 TCU and hex useful for belay.
P4. Continue up over an overlap, up, finally left across arete to spacious belay, 165 feet. A #4 Camalot and 2 longer slings useful for belay.
P5. 3rd class to the top.
Make a quick descent in obvious gully to the right. This is fun, a bit spicy for a 5.7 leader. It was followed by a first-time ever climber.
