The climb follows a huge groove in the southeast buttress, look for a large roof 50' above the ground. Squeeze thru the roof and end up on the crux on pitch 3. It's a choice between wide hands or pro, I go for pro. Stem thru and voila.
Look for the huge roof at the bottom of a groove on the left of courthouse rock. Just 100yds left of the mountaineers route.
standard rack from fingers thru #4 camalot; two bolts on each of the first three pitches with bolted anchors. Last two pitches are 200' each with only one bolt between them; go right at end of 4th pitch to find belay bolt. Rappel Mountaineer's Route with double ropes.
