Climb the choss arete to the roof entering the right-facing corner to a ledge, and do some scary moves to the start of the crack, which is followed to the top. Classic.


This is around the corner, right of Byrd's.


This is totally scary if you don't stick clip the first bolt in the corner. Bring draws and hand-sized gear. It needs fixed anchor to prevent rope jamming in the crack at the top.

This route gets only three stars because the start of the climb is terrible. The corner and the crack are classic. Really tiny stoppers and a green Alien should protect the crux, from the first to the second bolt. Good old fashion sport/trad!
