Major Groove climbs the wide crack just to the left of the Access Route. Face climb (crux) to the base of the groove/crack. Grunt your way up the crack with a combination of face, crack, and chimney techniques. Not a difficult climb, and like the Access Route, very short.
Start from the left side of the grassy ledge on the east face buttress (just left of Access Route).
Leadable with medium to large cams. You can also set a good top rope anchor with a couple of large cams (BD #3.5) above the route.
