Fight your way through the wide crack and protect when you can. The higher you climb the more it relaxes. Upon reaching the top tread your rope into the ram horns.


The wide crack directly left of Fin Inn


Bigger cams, there is a hand crack in the back of it that protects well. Bring runners. Ram Horn's on the anchor for easy lower off

This is not a new route. I was on this with a couple of friends back in 2014. The guy who led it called it 5.8+. I'm pretty sure it has been led before many times over the last 10-15 years.

Hey Clayton, as far mountain project goes, this is a new route. As far as the fa goes it was probably climbed in the 50's or 60's by Hornbein and/or Dietsche. They are placed in the fa category out of respect. That great that your friends climbed it in 2014, but Ryan Richardson said it's a 5.11a and that it's burly. The supposed 5.8+ sounds pretty sandbagged
