DescriptionDirectississima (AKA Doubleissima), is a fantastic crack climb on the right side of the High E buttress. It's well protected, very sustained, and long.
Starting at a crack system well right of the arete, climb up to the Directissima ledge and belay (5.8+, some tricky gear); or continue onwards, heading straight up off the middle of the ledge into the meat of the climbing. The crux comes in pulling through a small roof/notch.
Belay at the top of the High E buttress and rap just right of the climb.
