Description

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

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