Description

The route is rated 5.3, but one must keep in mind that this rating is from Touch the Sky, and may seem a tad underrated (Mark Schwartz and I both thought 5.5 would be a fair rating). There are two distinct cruxes when coming to a small headwalls and having to move from one formation to another.

Location

The route is on the northeast side of the formation and moves up the obvious arete. To get down rappel from the anchors to the North of the formation with two ropes.

Protection

Most of the protection comes from slinging horns which can be done just barely with a double sling. It would be beneficial to bring two cordolettes that are a little longer to sling the nice natural protection. There are also a couple places where a cam or nut could be placed as well.

A very nice set of anchors are at the top of the route just below the summit. There is also a bolt that the Conn's put up in the late 50's /early 60's which is loose, tiny and not very confidence inspiring.
Fantastic summit! One 70m rope will get you down the NW face with rope to spare. Aug 23, 2016
Nice addition, Joel! Angela and I've been wanting to hop on this one for a while but just never quite get around to it! So much rock, so little time! Oct 8, 2007
