DescriptionProbably the easiest route to the summit, but not as easy to protect as South Crack.
Pitch 1: From the gully right of Chug-a-lug, climb up the wide flaring section towards the large boulder at the top of P1 of Chug-a-lug and Deep Throat. Keep traversing left up the easy broken terrain. Build a gear belay on the ledge (many options, .5-3). 4th class
Pitch 2: Head straight up the broken chimney and get on top of the last pointy block. From here move left onto the face using solid flakes to the east summit. No options for gear after moving onto the face, but the climbing is really easy. 5.4
LocationStart in the gully to the right of Chug-a-Lug and left of Chutes and Ladders.
Climb a mini pitch to the actual summit, rap off of the back side to the notch between the east and west summits. Walk north to the gully rap between Chutes and Ladders and Chug-a-lug, right back to your packs.
