This pitch is on a moderate section of rock and is kind of an easy 5.7 with the crux about 20-30 feet up.  Bomber gear placements.  This is a good alternative if you want to skip the final pitches of the SE Corner ... but! .... you must take caution when topping out due to loose rock in the 3rd class sections.


Uprising starts at the base of the Southeast Corner's "Ramp Pitch" which is just above the off-width/chimney problem.  Instead of heading to the right (east) on the SE Corner, Uprising ascends the rock directly above the chimney for about 50 feet and veers far left (west) for another 50' or so.  Follow a series of meandering cracks up the face and easy ledges until you come to a small grassy, gravelly ledge at a big headwall.  From this point, place a re-direct and work your way left up 4th/3rd class terrain until you reach an obvious ledge for a belay.  This is sometimes referred to as the Duck Blind.

Some climbers get off route easily on Uprising so be sure to examine the route and see where people have traveled before you.  If it's extremely overgrown, you may be in the wrong spot!  But expect some plant growth on the route.

Build an anchor and belay up your partner.  From here, you can walk over loose terrain to another 3rd class section continuing westward for about 100' ... eventually, you can walk to the Hiker Trail and cross the railing.
