Description [Edit]

Left ridge of the main summit wall. Pass the start for Triple O's, looking for a left slanting ramp with some trees/greenery and a short widish crack that takes you directly up to that ramp.

An adventure route. I recommend an affinity for and comfortability with choss and being able to climb with a light touch around some pretty loose stuff.

While never too difficult, route finding around sections of bad rock will likely be the crux for most.

Location [Edit]

Pass the Triple O's start heading left along the wall.

Protection [Edit]

Would probably take everything from micros to a #4.

All I had for beta was the topo in the new Granite guidebook. With that I was able to find the start and more or less pick out the line. I only did this because I had a day to kill in the Cirque before my partner arrived and wanted to solo something easy. The position of the route cool and you will get some unique views. I can't recommend the climbing much, but for the situation I was in, and being comfortable on this type of adventure, I definitely enjoyed myself. Jul 5, 2017
