DescriptionStart 300 feet left of a low, arching roof system (left of North Face Center), at an ugly, broken, right angling crack system. Climb the crack system to a large ledge, then angle left under a large roof to another large ledge, and cleaner rock. Climb up flakes and ledges to a pretty, but regrettably short right-facing corner, with a tips to fingers crack. Above the corner, trend left to reach a large grassy ledge. From the right end of the ledge, climb up to another large ramp. Follow the ramp to the upper "bowl". Devise an exit to the summit ridge (There is an easy-looking obtuse dihedral on the far left. We followed a weakness just right of that to an interesting, but easy, chimney).
Walk/scramble down southwest to Jackass Pass.
