Description [Suggest Change]
Although many variations exist on this side of the peak, the direct route up the east face climbs beautiful, orange rock with plentiful holds and ledges. The first pitch is up an obvious dihedral to a small ledge on the right wall above the prominent overhang, 5.8+. The next involves aid (or 5.11c-ish?) climbing for about 30 feet and then hard moves to the large, left-slanting ledge that crosses the entire face. From the top of the ledge, about 200 feet long, climb right on a steep ledge to a sharp corner. A couple easy pitches, more or less, lead up along the ridge to the east summit.
Protection [Suggest Change]
A small rack of wires and cams up to four inches. Lots of slings are always helpful.
