This route is a slabby mind-game that begins on the E arete of Duckbill. Scramble up the starting ramp to approach the crystal face on the right. Once up the face, traverse left and upward to a fixed bolt. Continue upward on a crystal face until you come to a horizontal crack that will take a couple pieces of gear. The easiest path from here is straight up the arete and to the summit.


Located on the east Arete of Duckbill and begins with a low angled ramp.


.75 - #2 with a couple slings. 1 bolt

Wilson the photo is a bit deceiving. The rope is traveling next to another line that is just to the left of Duckbill. I didn't climb that other route so I didn't add it. It is in the guidebook but I'm not completely sure when it was bolted. But, when I climbed Duckbill, it still only had the lone bolt. Duckbill follows a ramp just outside the right edge of photo for the first 30' or so. Jul 23, 2013
