Description [Edit]
The Gendarme was a 25 foot pinnacle that rose from the center of Gunsight Notch (hence the name Gunsight Notch - it looked like the sights of a rifle). It fell/slid down the mountain on October 22, 1987.
Climb the east face of the Gendarme. Start on the northeast corner and move diagonally up to a ledge on the south east corner. Climb to the summit. The route is not considered completed until the climber stands un-aided on the summit. It can be a real trip on windy days. It was a highly recommended route for everyone.

Protection [Edit]
The protection consisted entirely of fixed pins. The descent was via rappel from several bolts on the summit

Even though it was technically not very hard, it was incredibly exposed and gave anyone who dared it bragging rights forever. I did it.. Oct 13, 2014
