DescriptionFollow the directions as for the West Face route. Once at the base of the blocky dihedral, climb up. The first 2/3 of the dihedral is somewhat lose but easy. Once you reach the final third, you have a couple of choices:
The class 3 option heads left (North) until it reaches the North arete and then romps up to the summit block.
The 5.2 option climbs up to a headwall under a roof and then traverses right (south) under the roof and up the south side to the very summit. This is fun, exposed and very well-protected.
Descent - downclimb East, then south, and finally West onto the trail.
