P1. From a large grassy ledge to the left of the start of the Love Route, easy 5th class leads to a ledge that runs across the lower part of the buttress. Follow this left to the middle of the buttress at a convenient belay tree next to the wall.
P2. Head up to a small tree about 30' up the wall, continue up then angle right along a weakness then back left to belay in a small, right-facing dihedral that goes through a bulge 200' above and slightly left of the start of the pitch. 5.10b R. This outstanding pitch is one of the best if not the best on Hallett.
P3/4. Continue 250' directly up the buttress on 4th and easy 5th class rock to connect to the Love Route at the white band.
