Description Suggest change

Some rock sense required. This route hasn't seen a ton of traffic, so there's definitely some flaky terrain that has yet to exfoliate. Fortunately, the hard bits are solid!

Start as for Southern Express and trend left into the alcove/ledge through easy terrain. Work up and left until able to cut back right and tackle the first crux, a wave of rock split by a crack. Crank over that bulge, then advance to the roof. There's nowhere left to go but left along a rail, which may require some ... unconventional ... footwork.

Either lower off the bolted anchors or continue the adventure upward for a short pitch of 5.6 to top out.

Location Suggest change

In a massive alcove

Protection Suggest change

Standard rack. A #4 or #5 may be helpful in the final traverse but it's not a must
