DescriptionThis route follows the distinct line up the right side of the north face from the col between Overhanging Tower and Shark's Nose. We found the climbing on Shark's Nose as good as any in the Cirque and followed the beta from the Bechtel guide book.
There are two options for descending off the North/South Shark Nose summits. From the North Summit follow the rap stations back down the NW Buttress (Thoroughfare route) approximately 5 of them. From the South Summit follow the obvious 4 raps south towards Block Tower. Both descents/raps can be done with a 60m rope.
