DescriptionStart 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.
