Description

Located on the right side of the first buttress about 80 - 100 feet right of Dunn's Dihedral. Approach from the base trail up through the aspen trees to the start, you can't miss it. This aesthetic line ascends the prominent double-overhanging, left-facing, corner system through four roofs of increasing difficulty. This is a hard route that continues to challenge with progressively harder moves all the way to top. The top of the route overhangs the start by a good amount. Other than two old pins at the square cut roof, the gear is all trad and quite small at the crux which is a little run out but safe enough.

Descend by traversing the broken ledge system approximately 50 feet to the right until you can enter and descend a moderate chimney system that takes you back to the startof the route. An alternate choice would be to ascend one of the many fine second pitch routes above and walking off to the right.

Protection

A little bit of everything with a predominance of small wired pro through the crux. There are two fixed pins on the route; one old ring angle at the corner of the square cut roof and the other out left of the roof in a small flake. There is no fixed anchor at the top, but abundant opportunity for trad gear placements for an anchor.
