Description

This route is the most striking line up the needle.
It will be one of many photo ops.
Lots of pockets, good exposure, and a great summit with beautiful views.
(Be cautious of the block at the top of the arête. A bolt was placed to steer people left of it and not use the crack to pro.
Climb face and use crack for left hand side pull.)
(First ascent was rope soloed. No consensus was taken for the rating. Any input for a consensus will be considered)

(This is a new area with few ascents so beware of some loose rock) WEAR A HELMET!

Location

Route starts on the left of face below SW Arête
6 bolts up face to horizontal ledge
climb block and pro on top
Then 4 bolts along arête to summit
Multiple raps:(W/using a 60m rope)
1. Single rope rap from chains down north to GC Ledge
Then follow ledge west to SW single rope rap will take you to base of route.
2. Single rope rap to base of GC. Can be done in 2 raps by using chains at GC ledge to minimize rope drag. Go south and along east traverse line to reach base of route.

Protection

10 bolts. A few 12" draws or slings.
A #2 or #3 cam at the top of the block between the 6th and 7th bolt.
