I do not remember much but it followed a lower angle crack line in the middle of the north face for 5 or 6 pitches then gaining the summit ridge which was followed to the top block.

This is here because history provides the backdrop that all climbing is done in today. No old routes, no new routes. The present is always built on the foundation of the past. Thank you, old bold climbers!
