Description

This is a great route that offers a challenge if you want to pass time while waiting for Upper Hitchcock. P1: Depending on conditions it is tough to leave the ground as the first 30 feet is usually thin and deceiving. Climb the first half to a shelf (Ice is not present in some years). Continue up a steep corner stemming or what ever may work for the conditions. Exit and use a tree anchor.P2: Walk uphill to the next rock band. Climb the steep pillar above. 

Location

This route is located 20' left of Upper Hitchcock. Thin slab to a steep corner. Climb Lower Hitchcock Gully or Left Hand Monkey Wrench. Continue left to Upper Hitchcock. You can easily hike up and right eventually meeting up with the Upper Hitchcock summit trail. Follow the trail to the AMC or rappel via lower Hitchcock.

Protection

Screws. (2) 60 meter ropes or (1) 70 meter rope will get you to the ground safely off the rappel anchor (Tree with rings).
