DescriptionThis is a very fine route up the southeast side of the Exclamation Point. It shares the same start as the Conn route which is the tight chimney on SE side which separates Exclamation Point from the lesser formations to the east. After just a few feet of chimney climbing, move left to follow an obvious crack system directly up the face. After a horizontal, the crack becomes more of a seam in a subtle corner/groove. The crux is a bit sporty and is protected by very small gear. Bring small nuts and your smallest micro-cams. After a short ways the crack opens up again to fingers, then a handcrack leads through a bulge. Above that, the crack ends and three bolts lead through very juggy knobs and another overhang to the summit.
To descend, rappel from a bolted anchor with 2 ropes down the very sheer south face. Or we made it down with one 70m by rappelling directly back down the climb and downclimbing the first few moves of the start of the route (sort of tricky).
