DescriptionA rarely-climbed, entertaining jaunt up a fairly solid quartzite face featuring mostly large, positive holds.
Start below the obvious first bolt and head up and past the bolt. Step right onto the face containing the rest of the bolts, taking care not to knock off loose stuff onto your belayer.
Head up the face while being a little careful in the holds you select. Near the top the route steepens a bit and keeps things interesting.
LocationOn the right face of the large corner beneath the large root, both of which are found on the east side of the lowest buttress of Trilogy.
The easiest way to get there is to hike up the right side of the gully below Trilogy and bear right rather than left when you must turn. Scramble up and then walk over to the base of the route.
