Description [Edit]

Beef of the route starts on the big partially detached pillar (watch for loose rock and sediment).

To climb to the top of the pillar ledge. You can climb a much easier crack on the face. But you should man up and climb the offwidth on the left (#5 camalot fits like a glove).

Crux is at a small bulge with a long left move to a crimp, then some tomfoolery to the next edge. Stay tight. Ticktack climbing to the top.

Location [Edit]

This is the route between Windurn and Big Howie. Start below the large detached pillar ledge.

Protection [Edit]

Pretty sure it's 9 bolts. 3 chains at the top with carabiners. Optional 4 or 5 camelot for the offwidth.
