From the 1976 AAJ:

"A color photo in a packer’s brochure shows this face to good advantage. The north-facing wall is about 700 feet high, rises above Spring Lake (Middle Fork Kaweah drainage), and is reached by an uphill grind from Mineral King. Robb Dellinger, Debbie Winters and I placed the first route on this attractive face July 14, 1974, following essentially a direct crack and dihedral system to the summit. The rock is very good and the climbing continuously excellent. NCCS III, F6."

After walking along the base of the Spring Lake Wall and examining features with binoculars, it is believed this route ascends the face of the peak closest to Granite Pass, rather than the larger and steeper face that is directly above Spring Lake.


It is believed that this route climbs the upper right side of the face, closer to Granite Pass than Spring Lake.
