Description

Climb a nice corner crack system starting just to the right of the "Original route" and left of "Worker Bee" Belay on a nice ledge with a small horn. Continue up wandering cracks for a full rope length through a small roof until you reach easier terrain. Finish with a moderate 5.5/5.6 shorter pitch then scramble on 4th class terrain to the summit. This climb has lots of options to break it up into more shorter pitches or just keep them cruising.

Location

Descent: Scramble along the summit ridge and either down climb or rappel your way to the top of the 4th O' July Couloir.

A great variation to the third pitch is to follow the large right facing dihedral straight above the second belay instead of bailing to the right and scrambling to the summit, it is mostly sweet 5.7+ slightly runout face climbing and it spits you out directly on the summit. Super quality and worthwhile to keep the climbing sustained all the way to the summit. Oct 7, 2017
