DescriptionA good alternative to the often croweded Lowe Route, or, if you've already ticked the Lowe Route.
P1: Do the first pitch of the Lowe Route.
P2: Step up, and, at the shallow ledge, instead of heading up right as for the Lowe Route, step up left and follow several bolts pretty much straight up, passing a couple of fixed pins and another bolt, to a fixed belay anchor left of the left slanting overhanging corner above.
P3: Traverse to the right to pass the overhang, then step up and back left to a couple of pins and bolts to the summit ridge.
Put up on lead.
Fun route, plenty of air, and a nice line.
