Face climb for 15 feet to reach the crack. From there, climb the fun handcrack to the anchors. Lower off.


On the right side of the East Face. This is the hand crack that begins about 15 feet off the ground.

Big fun. I use the first bolt on the 10a arete to the right for my first piece and traverse in to avoid a possible ground fall. With a direct start, you have ZERO gear until you're pretty far up--the above-mentioned 15 ft. A big cam up high (4") is nice.
