The climb starts out easy with several ledges and ramps to rest on. The final 30 ft or so is sustained and exposed.
This climb is just left of Central Pillar on the opposite side of the buttress separating the 2 flows and begins at the top of a drainage gully that starts near the north end of the Beaver Pond. Be careful on the approach and descent since the drainage can be quite icy and there was an injury there in 2007 requiring evacuation. At the top of the gully there is a large tree on the left. This is the base of Tendonitis, Arm & Hammer is to the right.
