Description

Start off in the rightward of 3 cracks at the base til the crack starts to tighten. Step right, clipping 2 bolts, to gain the long, leftward-leaning crack system to the top. There are multiple 5.10 cruxes with the thin 5.11 crux coming after the 2-bolt traverse. Lots of "potato chip flakes" needed to be cleaned and still more to do.... Demanding crack climbing!

Protection

Gear to 4" and 3 bolts protect this high alpine gem. Use the 2-bolt anchor w/chains for the descent.
