DescriptionFrom the end of P1 of Kauffman-Cardon, climb the large, left-facing corner. Pull the bulge at the top (crux) and move up to the large ledge with rap rings.
To descend, you can rap from the rings atop Bee Sting Corner. From here with a 60m rope you can rap down to the Kauffman-Cardon ledge and another set of rap rings. From the K-C rings, rap down to a third set of rings about 20' down and to climbers left or to a set of rings close to the tree below Dufty's Popoff. Either of these last two sets will get you to the base.
Caution! From the shuts on Kauffman-Cardon ledge rapping with 60m rope will be really close to reaching the ground...be sure to tie knots in your rope ends and rap to climber's left of the big left-facing corner just below the K-C ledge.
Two 60m ropes tied together will hit the base from Bee Sting Corner.
Alternatively, you can scramble up and over the rocks that will be directly in front of you (west) when topping out Dufty's Popoff or Bee Sting Corner (to the left when you top out on Skyline Traverse). On the other side of these you can walk around to Luncheon Ledge and then either walk all the way down the Stairmaster or to the top of Ecstasy Junior and rap down from there
