Description

Roux follows the large, obvious left-facing corner right beside Lichen or Leave It. Most folks do one pitch, then rap off the large tree at the top. You can do a second pitch to the summit (ends in a chimney) but then you'd need to walk off and around...a loose and dangerous proposition.

Location

First prominent corner uphill from Gunsight Notch.

Protection

Good place to learn to lead. It eats large pro of all types.

I did this route this past Saturday. At the end of the chimney simple walk across the exposed ledges and between the large rocks. Aug 14, 2017

Led P1 on 8/14/15 w/JV (casual and fun). Then I led P2 to the chimney on the East Face of the North Peak, explored the West Face a little, but down climbed the whole way back to the tree atop P1 because couldn't find a walk off to the North Peak summit trail. Does anyone have beta for the walk off, if it's possible? Also, does anyone know if it is possible to use a single 60m rope to safely rap off the Bell Wall on the West Face of the North Peak from the rap rings at the U shaped notch (red circle in photo below)? It seemed doubtful, so I chose against it. P2 moves over the top of a series of right trending flakes and isn't nearly as good as P1. Aug 17, 2015
