Mike Weis starting the summit pitch.

Description 

A four or five pitch route on the north side of the formation, just uphill from the base of the east edge. A couple of 5.9 sections are encountered before reaching the crest and then the base of the summit tower.

Location 

Scramble to the base of the Fang below the east face, then go up the gully right of the formation for a short distance, perhaps 20 yards or so, to a crack system on this north face. Climb the cracks, trending right, and finally attain the crest of the east 'ridge'. Scramble up to the base of the summit tower and climb it's south face. Rap off the summit and make another longer rap into the gully north of the tower.

Protection 

A standard rack with cams to 3" offer good protection.
