Most obvious, clean line up the Eagles nest, the most prominent, detatched pillar. Route faces entirely west. It starts on a face and crack system, to a ledge, and eventually joins the west facing chimney system that peters out towards the summit.


scramble off the true summit to a lower block to the northeast and rappel off of a horn down the north facing chimney into a beautiful corridor

I think the FA was Baxter/Karlstrom, early to mid '70s.
Seems like Scott called this something like the Fickle Finger of Fate.
