Scramble up the gulley left of the Freezer Burn Wall to a stance on large blocks in the gulley below the broad rounded arête. Climb the slab up and to the left on nice rounded holds and edges to a 3 bolt anchor (30 ft) or clip a bolt and continue up the arête. Climb the wild and exposed arete past 11 bolts to a stance with cold shuts on the crest of the buttress. The short 3rd pitch continues up and left and over a bulge to a bolted anchor. The difficulties on the top pitch aren't over once the bulge is pulled as finding an anchor can be problematic and the walk off to the base is long.
