Pitch 1: (11d)Begins on the far right side of the large ledge system 200 feet from the summit. Rap in (2 raps with a 60m rope) from the anchors at the top of the route "Where Eagle Dare" to reach the terrace. Traverse the ledge system with caution to the right side and the steepest part of the upper wall. There is a good belay area here.

The first pitch begins with steep blocky climbing to a steep corner capped with a roof. Negotiate this first crux with long reaches to a rest over the roof. Then head up and right into a corner system that holds the second and hardest crux moves exiting the corner. Finish with pumpy moves back left on good holds, and up to a slabby attention grabbing ending to a two bolt anchor.

Pitch 2: (10a) Follow 3 or 4 bolts of easy climbing to an anchor just below the top of the cliff. This pitch wanders a bit.


Right side of the large ledge system that is 200 feet below the summit. Best to do 2 raps from the anchors atop the route "Where Eagles Dare" with a 60m rope. The top rap station is easily identified as its the only anchor visible from the summit that has rap rings.

This route has great movement. It would have one more star if the rock were better. It is very worthwhile to do and perhaps the best route on this panel.
