DescriptionThe route starts to the right of Grand Funk Railroad just beneath an odd hole in the rock. There is also a pine tree very close to the rock. Climb up to the hole and place protection inside of it. Move to the right towards a bolt just over the raised dikes. There is another bolt up and slightly right from the first. Climb up over a bulge above the bolt or move out left around the bulge and head to the first shared belay with Saturday Night Live.
On the second pitch, climb up and to the left towards a bolt on easier ground. Angle back right to another bolt just underneath of the headwall. Climb up and to the right over the headwall to another set of belay anchors that is shared with Saturday Night Live. From here, climb straight up over easy terrain to the top. The last pitch is not really worthwhile and there is a lot of boring, low angle slab. We climbed up and just walked ropeless to the left so that we could rappel back down on Autumn Speaks and The Pulpit - five raps with a single 70M rope. There are no rappel rings on the top of the mountain right of No Alternative.
