Description Suggest change

Climb the "Five-Eight Crack" or "Five-Ten Crack" up and just past the lower-off tree to a ledge. Follow "White Death" up a wide, shallow chimney where it it comes close to "Rhinodina."

Step out left of the corner along a thin, strait line of strata that that angles left and connects with the traverse on the "Briggs Variation" to "Rincon." This is scary, but the climbing is pretty fun.

Note: "White Death" follows the larger broken band that parallels the route above, then steps down to the second belay on Rincon.

The late Derek Hersey apparently wanted to name a route "The Killing Fields," but never got around to it.

Protection Suggest change

RPs to a #4 Friend, long runners and tie-off slings.
