Start in a sandy pit below a large corridor between the South face of South Tower and the North face of West Greusome.

This corridor the climber is repelling down is the start for both of these summits.

West Gruesome starts in a chimney on your right side. This chimney is not very deep within this main corridor.

The chimney will turn into a flake system that can be seen in this picture. Pitch one ends when you reach a small, alcove before the south face.

Pitch two is a small, exposed set of fine foot movements to a crack with a small tree in it. Move past the tree and finish out on some neat slab with a near sidewalk feature on it.

It might be best to make two repels with one sixty meter rope. Repel from summit to a ledge in the corridor. The second repel to your original starting point can be made using webbing around a chalkstone.
