Description [Suggest Change]

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 [Suggest Change]

First prominent corner uphill from Gunsight Notch.

Protection [Suggest Change]

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

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

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
