This route starts on the northeast quadrant of the Pluton

The crux is a few moves on the 3rd pitch to negotiate a dihedral/chimney.

The "start" of the route is somewhat vauge, kind of a choose your own adventure. On the north east side of the monolith, look for a nice starting point anywhere on the class 3 slabs underneath the eroded cave-ish wall. Make your way up and to the climbers left until you can see a notch/chimney leading to the eastern false summit. Shoot from there.

This route was actually very fun, all easy slab through the trees, very wandering for the first 2 pitches. The 3rd pitch is the most fun and get you on the summit. Can easily link any combo of the pitches but rope drag might be annoying.

Scramble or short rope across the top to one of the obvious rappel trees on the summit.

Camalots .3-2 did the trick, one full set of cams plus doubles in the .4-1 range would be a safe bet.
