This route starts immediately to the right of the large fir tree on the north face of Supremacy. Follow an obvious, wide seam up angling slightly right toward a small tree. Just above the tree, stem out left onto the face and follow a pair of shallow cracks to the left. After ten feet, head up and right again on a broken-up seam. Finish by traversing left again on a ledge to the large alcove at the top of the NE arette.


The pro is probably reasonable, though creativity may be in order. It is probably easier to top rope along with Supremacy Slab.


A good climb for a beginner. The crux is the first traverse to the left after reaching the tree. Keep your feet on a the diagonal crack with some good undercling holds. Once you reachthe small bush head up and to the right; the rest of the climb has good holds. Sep 26, 2003

Pro is really not hard to find at all and doesn't require any creativity. On the crux traverse, there is good gear at your feet. After the traverse, the rest of the climb has great pro. Sep 26, 2010

Good route but not much gear until you reach the first tree. After that, it's fine. May 16, 2014
