Description

from Secor's Peaks Passes & Trails 3rd edition:

"Begin by climbing the gully that is immediately to the right of the prominent north rib of the peak. Go up and right for six pitches of 5.6 and 5.7, reaching the ridge about 100 feet left of the summit block."

Location

After reaching Precipice Lake walk around it on the right and go up onto a hump of granite until you see the prominent north rib.


Descent: walk down class 2 into the Big Arroyo and around to Kaweah Gap.

or... At class 3, it is also possible to top out, head down towards the Big Arroyo and hop over the NE ridge of Eagle Scout and drop back to Precipice Lk. Little bit shorter this way, but involves some route finding.

Protection

alpine rack. singles, some doubles. one 60m. approach shoes for descent.

In the last few years, I've spoken with a couple parties that have done it. They all had good things to say. Sounds like the standard, bit of loose rock and dirty cracks because of the light traffic.

edit: climbed it a couple weeks ago. Pretty good route, o.k. rock, lots of cracks and face climbing. great position.

Also the North Face Route 5.7, looks really good! Apr 21, 2016
