Description

P1: Start right of the base of West Pole, and climb the left-facing corner to a point that is at the climber's right side of the West Pole roofs (70 feet).

P2: Move up and right, over the corner (not through the roof), stepping onto the West Face. Move up easier moves to the small tree above (25 feet).

P3: Move up and left to join the last pitch of West Pole (25 feet).

Location

Climb/scramble up the beginning of Old Man's Route to gain the West Pole ledge. Clarke's Climb starts on the right side of the ledge in the corner.

Protection

Regular Seneca Rack. There's good protection in the roof on P2 to protect the corner move.
