What if Steck/Salathe, Chouinard/Herbert, and Hillary/Norgay had said, 'Why bother?"
Thankfully, Broski/Linaweaver didn't either.

Fun moves, and some thoughtful meandering.
Last third chossy.
Direct finish harder than 10b IMO. Indirect finish (to the right), easier than 10b.


The route is well to the right of the famous Sex/Sex Packets buttress, climbing the right side of an obvious face. Starts some 20 feet or more up a gully.


If leader falls before first bolt, nastiness ensues. Can establish safer belay with 3/4 to 1 inch cams in a crack up and to the right of base.
5 bolts to rusty chains.
