Description

Great route with crux at beginning ascending steep pillar to snow ledge then up slight diehedral to top. Belay off small trees near top. If initial pillar is not in you can still do the main part of the climb by slogging to climbers right around buttress and circling back in on snow ledge 20' up.

Location

In cirque 1/2 way between Alpha Male and bottom of pass about level with road across drainage. Park at pullout accross from it. Go all the way down and all the way back up. The route is located on the far right of the cirque containing the climbs. Descend by traversing to climbers left about 20' to large trees above Solo Lobo (possible sling)and rap with double ropes. I'd only recommend climbing here late in the season due to avy danger on approach and from above. Stays in longer that most things in the area since it's North-facing.

Protection

Screws.
