DescriptionBegin as for Double Cross, but head left on the diagonal crack to a belay at Dogleg (5.10a/b). The crack continues slightly lower and traverses the North Buttress to finish at the first ledge of the NE Corner (5.10b R). Crux is at the end of the second pitch, with a potential bad fall for the second.
From the original 1970 guide: "About 35 pin placements are used; most are A1 and A2, but a few are more challenging. Two hanging belays were used on the first ascent." And regarding entering the Dogleg's 'Freeway': "A sling over a small loose flake and two bolt holes are used to enter the Freeway".
The original rating was A4.
