P1: 140 feet (crux pitch with smaller gear). Climb up and right to a small roof with yellow lichen. Clip the fixed angle (back it up) and traverse right to the weakness just left of the arete. Follow this line to a good belay ledge with a rap station (2 ropes).
P2: 70 feet. Go up (trending a bit right) the clean ridge above the belay to another good stance.
Final pitches: the last two or three pitches follows the ridge to the summit.


Start the route just east of the north ridge of the Tridents on a ledge. Use the yellow lichen under a small roof as a guide to the route location. Descent is by walking east and scrambling down easy ground between the trees to the upper talus field. Walk down to packs and the La Luz trail.


Standard trad rack with many over the shoulder two foot runners. There is a fixed pin on the first pitch but it is an old angle.
