Description

Start in the dihedral just around the right side of the lower crack that leads directly to the arete on the right side of The Howling face.

PITCH 1: Climb the dihedral to the first sloping earthen ledge. From there climb the wall on the left until it is possible to begin stemming up both right and left sides of the inside corner. Either end the first pitch on The Howling ledge, or move right of the ledge to gain the top section of the wall on the right side.

PITCH2: A very nice finish pitch, no harder than 5.3. From The Howling ledge proceed to the stacked blocks. Either climb up right or left around them (going under is just going to make life harder for both you and your belayer) until on top of the blocks. Continue up the pocketed and featured left wall to the top. Variation 1 (5.10) - Rather than finishing on the left-facing corner of the right wall, move out and right onto the face and up a series of short roofs to the top.
