Fantastic route! 1st 2 pitches are 5.7/5.8 knife edge ridge traversing, then 2 more pitches on the headwall that involve good cracks, chimneys and steep bulges. There are a few hard crux moves that felt very full value for 5.8. The cruxes are steep, roof-like bulge moves and hard chimneys in the squeeze size and bigger.
Start from near Horn Col. Scramble south up class 3 to a big boulder on the ridge filled with white and pink quartz. Rope up here and start the 2 pitches of knife edge ridge traverse.
No bolts, build your own anchors. Standard alpine rack, few doubles in the hand and small range. Lots of alpine draws.
The north arête headwall/ top 2 pitches.
Up the P3 chimney. One of the 3 or so crux section...
On the P1 knife edge ridge.
