DescriptionThe Upper Deviation is split into two pieces by a chimney, this is the route. Climb the chimney with little protection to the notch and belay here. A short second pitch climbs north out of the notch and back onto the east face to the summit.
The first pitch is more of a high-angle gully than a pure chimney. It is unusual and receives a star for this.
