Pitch 1: 5.10a
Pull through some boulder moves at the start and countinue upward on good holds. Bring an alpine draw for the bolt under a bulge and perhaps another for the final bolt.

Pitch 2: 5.10b
Head upwards to fun stemming and eventually working your way up a right-leaning crack.

Descent: Rappel the route.


This climb begins on the nice, flat ledge roughly in the middle of the West Face. Council of Elders is the right-hand bolt line. A Perfect Storm is the left line of bolts. The bolts are camouflaged, so look carefully for the low first bolt.


Quickdraws, and lots of them!
