Classic rockaneering up the river side of the main massif. This is probably the easiest way to the top of Petenwell Bluff.

Pitch 1 (3rd/4th):

Scramble up-and-to-the-right on an obvious ramp from the base of the massif to a saddle. At the saddle, move the belay (if you used one) by heading west across a slight gully falling away to the northwest.

Pitch 2 (Easy-5th):

After crossing the gully, you will find yourself deposited on a nice flat ledge at the north end of the main massif. Mantle onto the summit plateau and walk south to the summit block.


East side of the main massif. Easiest route to the summit of the entire formation.


A mix of slings, stances, and terrain belays should allow a competent leader to comfortably protect followers.
