This route is just over 1/2 a rope length including rope drag, so plan on having the 2nd follow if leading. A full length rope should let you do a TR without a problem.

The route follows the vertical crack on right hand side of the wall (to the right of My Daily Shame). Head up about 20 feet until you hit a "nose". This is the crux of the climb. From there, head up and to the left following the weakness in the rock.

An easier variation (at the cost of extra rope drag and some potential loose rock) is to go under the nose and to the right and meet backup up with the main route. Along with the rope drag, be careful as a section of loose rock can be found.

As you get towards the top, follow a crack running up lighter color rock to a great belay.


The rock face can be found at 47.466761, -120.941196

If you take the standard trail to Ingalls lake, head uphill NW towards the rock outcropping. This is found about 100 yards before the turn off that takes you back to the camping sites.


Standard rack, the crux move (just up and to the left of the "nose") can be protected by a #4 Cam. Gear anchor at the top with a nice walk off towards climber right.
