DescriptionThe route climbs the obvious crack system in the center of the south face.
Pitch 1- C2 climbing passing two bolts to avoid loose rock leads to C1 climbing in a gradually widening crack. When the crack gets too wide for gear, a nine bolt ladder leads to a 5.8 chimney to a two bolt hanging belay on a small stance. 5.8 C2 200ft.
Pitch 2- A 5.8 runout left then up leads to a ledge. Continue up passing two more bolts and a short section of C2 to the summit and a two bolt belay/rappel anchor.
To descend, rappel the route.
