Description Suggest change

Your best bet is to do this as one pitch from the ground to the Grand Traverse ledge.

Bear gently left from the Directississima (aka Doubleissima) start until you come up to the ledge that some books recommend belaying from (I don't - this belay sucks!). From this ledge there is an obvious crack, 5 feet to the left of Doubleissima and 3 feet to the right of the hand traverse of Directissima. Follow a beautiful arching line, almost to the Directissima arete and then back towards the left side of the Doubleissima face.

Location Suggest change

Start is the same as Doubleissima.

Protection Suggest change

Trad gear, regular rack. Gear is as good as you want, if you don't get pumped.

Rappel via the High E bolted rappel.
