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 shorter pitches or just keep them cruising.


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


Standard alpine rack.
