Description

This route is on the left side of the West Face in a concave section of the wall. (To the right of Dialogue on Zen.) Approach via the Keyhole route but turn left and scramble up a 3rd class gully shortly before you get to the Trough. The slabby start is non-distinct and has many options. The third pitch is wonderful. Look at the beta photo to see where this route goes.

P1. Climb discontinuous cracks on low angle rock to reach the base of a left-facing dihedral.

P2. Follows this dihedral to a belay below a small roof.

P3. Turn the roof and follow the beautiful clean dihedral to the top of the wall.

Some easy scrambling gets you to the summit. Descend via the North Face or the Keyhole Route.

Protection

A standard alpine rack will suffice.
