DescriptionThis line is one of the most moderate and consistent climbs on the Lower Bastion. The hike from the top of the 5th pitch to the beginning of the 6th can be somewhat sketchy especially if climbing while snow is still on the middle bastion.
Pitch 1 (5.6)
Pitch 2 (5.7)
Pitch 3 (5.7)
Pitch 4 (5.6)
Pitch 5 (5.7)
Pitch 6 (5.6)
Pitch 7 (5.7)
From the top of the lower bastion (top of the 5th pitch) it is possible to rappel from an independent abseil line found to the left of the climbs on the face (down and to the left of the start of the 6th pitch). Three rappels will gain the bottom.
From the top of the middle bastion (top of the 7th pitch) it is possible to descent a scree slope to the east.
