DescriptionThough unnamed, this route is too good not to include. Just left of the obvious cave (and the route Chuck If You Want), this climbs the less-than-vertical nice, white stone.
Another great route on The Egg that climbs great from bottom to top, it has 3 separate and roughly equal in difficulty cruxes. Technical and uber-fun, this is one of the best on the North Face.
LocationFind the North Face of The Egg. Starts about 5m left of the big obvious cave. Its not the route that hugs the left side of the cave, through the overhang -- that's Chuck If You Want (also great). This is the next route left.
