Description

The route begins at the end of the fourth pitch of Empress. Instead of going up the off-width on Empress, traverse right for 15 feet to gain a crack. Ascend the crack for 135 feet or so and belay at a bulge where the route steepens. For the second pitch continue over the bulge, step down to another crack and follow it to a tree island. For the third pitch, ascend 4th-class slab to the top or traverse right to the woods and the top of Bob's Knob for the North Descent Route.

Protection

The crack takes lots of midsize to large cams and nuts. There also are places where smaller cams work.
