Climb a nice corner crack system starting just to the right of the "Original route" and left of "Worker Bee" Belay on a nice ledge with a small horn. Continue up wandering cracks for a full rope length through a small roof until you reach easier terrain. Finish with a moderate 5.5/5.6 shorter pitch then scramble on 4th class terrain to the summit.

Descent: Scramble along the summit ridge and either down climb or rappel your way to the top of the 4th O' July Couloir.
