Location

On the northeast corner of the pinnacle. Walk around the pinnacle and find a low-angle ramp-like section. This is the start of the route.

See photo.

Description

Climb the slab to where it ends below a vertical step climber's right. Pull up this short face and onto the arete. Continue to the summit.

I believe this is the easiest route to the summit. It was originally climbed free on gear, then retrobolted in 2001. The summit register calls the bolted version "Like Father, Like Son," but now it is called "Mountaineer's Route." Since it is protectable with trad gear and was retro-bolted, it is possible that the route could have the bolts taken out in the future.

Protection

As of June 2018, the route has 4 good bolts to a 2 bolt summit anchor with chains. 4 draws sufficient, add a few small pieces if you want to avoid mild runouts on easy terrain.

This may revert to a trad climb at some time in the future, which would require a standard rack with emphasis on small pieces. (The 2-bolt summit anchor would be retained.)
