This route ascends the seldom explored west side of clean slab between the Regge Pole and the McQuarrie Route. 

P1:  Climb the first 40' of the McQuarrie Route to the large featured slab on the left (below a big roof). Traverse left across the slab to where the roof ends, move farther left to a gear belay at a wide crack beneath the big slab above. 5.6. This belay can also be approached from directly below via 5.5 climbing.

P2:  Face climb up the poorly protected face (5.7) passing a piton to a flake at the base of a shallow left facing corner,  just below a bolt. Aid climb past a short bolt ladder (4 or 5 old bolts) to a tiny green corner. Free climbing up this leads to a semi hanging belay, 5.11... great pitch. 

P3: Edge up to thin cracks and flakes to a bolt. Traverse right and up (5.10) to easier cracks, these lead to the belay atop Pedestal Ledge on Arm and Hammer.


Start at the McQuarrie Route. 


Singles to 4", plus one bat hook or BD talon.
