Please take note of the request for climbers to avoid disturbing raptors if at all possible.
Self-policing our behavior is MUCH better than an outright ban!

The directions below assume you are facing Chey Desa Tsay at the start.
Pitch 1 (5.8 X): From the base, chimney up and right about 90' to a bolt. Clip it and continue up about 40' to a second bolt. The anchor is about 20' higher.
Pitch 2 (5.10 R): This pitch has wide stemming and chimney climbing between Rockfellow and Chey Desa Tsay. On the FA Steve Grossman led a portion of this pitch with foot-shoulder technique!
Traverse directly right 15', then work up about 30' to a crack on the CDT side. Protect, turn around, and make a big committing move on the Rockfellow face. From here climb up and left 40' to two bolts. We belayed here. The bolts are 10' apart so it is necessary to use a self-equalizing anchor.
Pitch 3: (5.10 PG13/R): Move back on to Chey Desa Tsay (jaw-dropping exposure) and up on to an angled ledge. Tricky face climbing leads up to a large ledge. From here continue up and left to a point just below the summit and belay.
