The first pitch climbs the obvious wide crack system on the left side of the south face at 5.10d. Please add info if you have climbed this; I have not.

The second pitch is rated 5.9+ and follows the ever-widening crack that splits the Knight's upper south face. Climb the quality crack in the left-facing dihedral as it grows from fingers to hands to #6. The crux, at least for me, is a steep stretch of #4.


This route starts up the wide crack on the left side of the south face. To descend, rappel north from the summit anchor. The rap is 130 feet; a 70m rope works well, but a 60m will not reach.


Bring lots of big gear for the first pitch. You need a standard rack to #5 or #6 for the second pitch.
