. . . but . . .
The easiest way is not so fun (perhaps a bit awkward?) and then the Left Ridge upper part which it reaches might be harder anyway.
Perhaps the Variation might be more interesting a better fit for the difficulty which follows.
directions: Start at the far left end of the wide platform which is the top of the main cliff of sector Secor. Step over left above drop-off (perhaps stepping a bit downward?) then horizontal with hands on obvious ledge to reach nose (of the route "Left Ridge"). Continue left aound under nose, and join the route "Left Ridge" to change to going upward.
Variation (about one grade harder): Instead of putting hands on obvious ledge, start by stepping up to get feet on ledge (same start as direct route "Connect Secor to Moynier"). Next traverse horizontal left. Then step up left above the nose, and join the route "Left Ridge" (see bolt a couple feet below left).
warning: The rock in this sector has not been climbed much yet, and much of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.
1 or 2 intermediate bolts (depends on what you count) for leading.
Variation has 2 intermediate bolts for leading. First one is shared with route "Connect Secor to Moynier".
. . Intermediate bolts + hangers are all 304 Stainless steel 3/8-inch x 2.75-inch. Installed 2018.
Top-Roping: This short route could be belayed from the top anchor of the route "Left Corner" or "Connect Secor to Moynier".
