Description Suggest change

This route is a bit scruffy at the beginning, but cleans up nicely as you go up. By the time you are climbing the classic crux pitch (pitch 7) you will have forgotten all of the lichen at the bottom.

Location Suggest change

This route is just south of the West Face rappel route, the Kraus-McCarthy. This makes this route a quick excursion. Once you top out the rappel stations are right there.

Protection Suggest change
