Description5 pitches, 4 of which are 5.9 and above (a rarity for Teton routes). Step off the ground right into a .10a undercling/lb. The second crux is on pitch 3, a very physical wide crack/roof combo that requires a variety of crack technique. In general, this is a sustained, physical route of very high quality.
LocationContinue past the Snaz/Caveat approach on the Death Canyon trail to a meadow just before the patrol cabin. A trail up through the talus will appear to your right. The start is an obvious, L-shaped undercling/lieback flake.
For descent, check the book. There are walkoff and rappel options. You can rap after the third pitch if desired.
