DescriptionThis is a reasonably good line with reasonably good protection. It is one of the better protected routes on this face if you take the required gear for it. There does not seem to be a particular crux or runout, but the route is characterized by its lack of prior travel... and has a little lichen.
Start on the crack system by the upper of the 2 pines coming close to he face, and ride that via mostly good face holds. Round out under a standing, loose flake, and go right and up around it and to the top.
To descend, move the belay up and right 20' to the S. Face station. A 70m just reaches the ground.
LocationThis climb is not far to the climber's right of the S. Face route. There are 2x pine trees present with this line starting upward from the base of the higher of the two. Trace a crack line upwards and slightly right from the base of the upper of these toward a very large flake at mid-route. Go left at the 'death flake' (8'*10'*2') without disturbing it, and continue up to the top to intersect the East Ridge. Belay and then rap, or belay and then continue to the summit via the East Face in a long pitch.
