Description

The route is the right-most crack just above and right of the Snag Ledge belay. This can be accessed in many different ways, the most popular of which are Little Wing and SE Corner first pitch.

From here, scramble up the dirty blocks to the obtuse corner/crack system. Follow this, clipping a couple old pitons and utilizing lots of unique holds in the crack more than crack technique. At the first ledge, which has a set of anchors on the left, you can belay or make a tricky move back into the crack (thin). Continue climbing the low angle cracks to another ledge and pull the tricky crux up to another ledge with bolted anchors.

The final short pitch climbs the crack to the right of the anchors. Jam the finger crack and squeeze into the flaring pod until it eases as you find features on the face above. A short step leads to another bolted anchor belay.

Either walk left around the corner and onto Grassy Ledges and continue to the top via another line or rappel the route. Do not skip any anchors with a 60m, but a 70m might allow you to skip one.

Location

From the top of the first pitch of SE Corner route, go up and right to the rightmost consistent crack system.
