Description [Suggest Change]
The crux for us on this route was definitely route finding, as there isn't much beta on this route. The chute V's out towards the upper-end and it's very important to stay to the right. Follow this up to a large chockstone that you can climb underneath. Climb on top of the chockstone and climb some easy 5th trending southeast and you'll come upon the summit block.

There are 1/4 inchers on the top of the summit block. We lasso'd it, and aided up.
