DescriptionSustained throughout. Access via shooting gallery 5.11a or 7th rifle 5.10.a (dry later in season than shooting). Upper headwall splitter is money. Flake pitches mid prow are mental crux. If bailing hike downhill and take first feasible line skiers left back to east creek bivy (2 hours 4th class) tricky when wet.
LocationWest face north howser.
Consult guidebook to locate desired start point.
Descend north ridge then shortly rap skiers right(east face) 5 or so raps. Single rope raps untill shrund which is 50m or so.
