This blank-looking face yields a beautiful climb that is much better protected and easier than it looks. Start on the crack line about 20 feet to the left of the "real South Face." (Or start on the South Face crack and angle left to this route.) At about 50 feet, traverse right about 8 feet on an obvious break and follow a hairline crack to the top, enjoying the amazing and surprising face holds. Good pro, but skill with RPs is essential. A red Tri-Cam is helpful. Double ropes might also be useful. Belay at the ridge and either traverse down and right a few feet to a rap anchor (125-foot rappel) or head up to the summit.
