Description Suggest change

Start uphill from the South Face route beneath a cave just right of a juniper.

P1 5.8+ S: step right through a bulge and climb up to the cave belay.

P2 5.10 R: move left out of the cave, follow an obvious traverse which leads to the Crow's Nest.

P3 5.8 S: (45') move up and right to an airy perch.

P4 5.12a R: step down right, traverse right, move up and right through the crux bulge to a belay on the slab above.

P5 5.8 R: climb left up the black ramp to the top.

This route was previously recorded as High South, 5.7 A2+. Unfortunately this significant route has been largely omitted or inaccurately described by recent guidebooks.

A variation finish was added by Miller-Light:

P5 variation 5.9 R: move right and up to join the East Ridge.
