This route isn't a classic, but it does have the distinction of being the highest route on the West Ridge listed in Steve Levin's guidebook to the canyon.

It starts with a corner that looks questionable but isn't that bad. Once you pass the corner and get onto a good ledge, climb the hand and fist crack to the top. There's a bit of loose rock in the crack, but it's easy to get around it.

(The route name and first ascent party were obtained from Steve Levin's excellent guidebook to the canyon.)


The route is a little ways up the Shirt Tail Peak approach gully. Look for a prominent flake and crack on the right side of the gully as you leave the trail that goes from Rincon to the West Ridge. The corner starts straight below said crack. Once you top out, easily scramble down climber's left back to the Shirt Tail Peak gully trail.


Standard Eldo rack up to a #4 Camalot. There are no fixed anchors at the top but plenty of spots for a gear anchor.
