Description

This climbs a crack, just right of the center of the Left Side face. From the right side of the face, walk left on a ramp/ledge to this crack. The crack doesn't quite reach the ledge and another crack runs parallel to it up higher. The rock is good. Follow this crack to a ledge, with a wide crack to the left an a hand crack to the right. Follow the crack on the right to the top.

Easy jams and climbing leads you to the summit. med, small gear or sling the pinnacle for an anchor. Description states up to 2" but 3" is also a go for the upper section.

Walk off climbers right or rap using rings on the left. May 29, 2011

Fun route... took us a second attempt to find it (was using Vogel and not notes from MP!). Its 5.6, no real surprises... 'cept the rap anchors to the left (as you face the route). Apr 12, 2009
