This route also goes free at 5.13d!

P1 - C2 or 5.12c - Aid or free the crack to a sling belay this pitch eats nuts.
P2 - C2 or 5.13d - Aid the crack up past 4 bolts (replaced by Alan Watts on his free attempt). Belay from 2 brand new bolts.
P3 - 5.6 C1 or 5.10b - Aid up the bolt ladder past one old belay to a slab to the summit. Many old bolts on this pitch.

P1 & P2 link with 60m rope. This takes more gear so you might want to back clean a little.


the only crack on the east face


clean rack to 2" heavy on the nuts


No bolts were added prior to the first free ascent, but four quarter inch bolts placed by Gerald Bjorkman were replaced with 3/8" bolts Feb 2, 2009
