Description

Approach as described for North Face Left, but instead of climbing that route, move West at the base to the rock's lowest point. Head up easy terrian (mostly 5.2) past Lichens and moss in some spots, to continue up and left along the rock's edge.

About 1/2 way up you will leave the edge (which gets jumbled and boring) and move inward to a second slab of rock which diverges from the right-most buttress.

The gear is typical of or maybe a little better than most real flat-iron climbing. If you are vigilant, there should be no severe falls. You will need long runners (lots) to avoid drag, however.

Protection

A standard light rack. One set of nuts, one set of cams to 3" and a few small tricams will do. Take many long runners.

I did this as two short pitches. I was swarmed by ants at the first belay on this less than interesting route. No crowds though, that's for sure. Sep 20, 2007
