Description

This route is the best of the previously documented or listed routes on the Apostle. The Haas book refers to this as a variation to the Southeast Ridge, but the lines share very little in character or line if either is followed directly.

Start off on a relatively high point on the main East Face slab of the Apostle, not far South (left) of the narrow buttress of rock that bisects the lower section North to South. Climb up on sunny clean rock on a slab with great slopers and the occasional edge to make a beeline for the summit.

Descend as for the SE Ridge.

Location

This route climbs the center of the main East face of the Apostle, starting just a few meters to the left (South) of the thin buttress which leans against the wall splitting the North and South Sides. It climbs the obvious slabs to the summit.

Protection

A standard light rack.
