Description

This route was probably first done as the last few pitches of the the North Rib, a grade IV, 5.8, climb of more than twenty pitches. In 1974, Kirk Miller and I approached the northern notch via the west side trail. From the notch, we did six pitches to the summit. Not the best rock quality, but steep, with mostly solid holds.
