The Saigons, a concatenation of "Still in Saigon" and "Miss Saigon", is two interesting pitches of 5.8 face climbing. Mostly less-than-vertical, the Saigons challenge leaders to mantel and trust their feet (albeit over excellent gear).
On the left side of the Thin Air face, uphill from the face's namesake route. Rap with two ropes from the bolt anchors atop pitch one, or finish up pitch two before traversing the Airation ledge to the right. A trail through the woods leads to the road, 300 yards from the summit, or you may choose to climb one of the Airation Buttress routes.
