This is a left to right girdle traverse of the chin. Description was provided by Alex Catlin.

FIRST PITCH: Traverse straight around the buttress to a low angle face on the side. Cross this face to an inside corner with a ledge and ancient pin.

SECOND PITCH: Climb up 10' and right to a 30' walk across ledge that ends at the yellow buttress. Traverse under the overhang on the buttress to a large ledge with a spruce tree.

THIRD PITCH: From the ledge traverse out to an outside corner. Climb down 15' to a ledge system which is followed until it ends before the gully.

FOURTH PITCH: Step over to a right facing inside corner, climb up to the horizontal crack, and hand traverse right. Traverse to the gully following the horizontal crack in the next wall. Step across the gully and hand traverse out the next buttress under the overhang. Walk across the buttress to the ledge just before the Rhadamanthus face.

FIFTH PITCH: Climb down 10’ and traverse right to Rhadamanthus. Climb Rhadamanthus to the ledges on the right. Walk across the ledges and step out to the arete. Belay on the small ledge on the outside corner.

SIXTH PITCH: Finish up the corner.
