Description [Suggest Change]
Climbs the prominent gully feature to the right of the Un-Judges route below the South summit. From the treed ledge, climb easy 4th and low 5th class terrain up the left side of the gully, drop into the gully when the angle backs off partway up. Exit the gully by climbing up an obvious ramp on the right. This is the crux of the route and although relatively easy (probably moderate 5th) is very, very loose. Some parties may bring a rope and a light rack for this section. From here the climbing is more 4th and 5th class scrambling up a system of ramps to the South Summit.
Location [Suggest Change]
Climbs the prominent gully to the right of the Un-Judges route. Approach by climbing the Un-Judges to a prominent treed ledge traversing the face, follow this to the right until you reach the base of the gully. To get down, follow the summit ridge to the true summit and walk off Judges (hiking) route. From the base of Judges, a few kilometers of logging road walking bring you back to your car.
Protection [Suggest Change]
The crux may be protected with a few slung rock horns, potential for use of pitons or small nuts.
