DescriptionThis climb is a decent one to do if you want an easy route in the area. Distance between good pieces might make it less then ideal for a beginning leader, however.
Start as for the S. Face and as soon as possible, traverse rightward onto a ledge to gain the Arete to the right (south). One can move back in from the arete to sling a tree if the runout is uncomfortably troublesome, then move back out. Climb the arete to the top with occasional protection and belay in a big dish up top wth 2-3" cams.
Descend by scrambling to (5.6, PG-13) and rapping the anchors above the Unknown 5.10b Sport Route (95' rap).
