Pitch 1. 5.10+. Start just left of a deep gully. The crux climbing is past a high first bolt to easier climbing, 100 feet, 6 bolts, a #3 Camalot (for the flake near the top), a #0 Metolius, a small wire before the first bolt, and a 2 bolt anchor.
Pitch 2. 5.10-. Our original line followed the line of least resistance to the right on crumbling rock, 5.8. We have reworked the pitch to climb directly on high quality rock to the second pitch anchors, 100 feet, 11 bolts, 2 bolt anchor. We left the original bolts but took the hangers.
Pitch 3. 5.9. Climb up and left on moderate face to a steep headwall. From here, you could climb to the right on an easy 5th Class ramp that takes you to the shoulder were the south face routes of Baby Helen's end. Instead, climb offwidth and hand crack to anchors, 80 feet, 5 bolts, a #1 and #3 Camalot, and a 2 bolt anchor.
Pitch 4. 5.11. Climb low angle slab to a left-arching crack. We found ancient bail gear at the bottom of the arching crack. We climbed the arching crack to the prominent corner above. We placed a bolt next to a giant loose block and retreated due to crumbling rock above, 50 feet to our last bolt.
