From the very toe of the buttress, follow the ridge for 8 to 10 pitches ranging from 4th class to 5.6 on excellent quartzite. This is followed by 2 loose pitches and then easy scrambling to the final summit ridge. Belays all have nice stances or ledges.
From the lower meadows, find the very toe of the buttress.
A light rack with pro ranging from small wires to medium hexes and lots of slings will suffice.

Did this route a coupld of weeks ago. You can easily make it harder (5.7/8) by picking specific lines. Great route tho on perfect rock. I think a solo of this route, Wham Ridge direct line and NF of W Trinity in a day would be the perfect trifecta.

Instead of "the very toe," from the col between Vestal and Arrow head straight over. Some class 4/5 scrambling will get you to the "ridge," which is more of a broad face of class 2, low angle slab hiking and scree scrambling. The only climbing on the route is just below the false summit and a traverse across an amazing knife edge up to the final class 4/5 scramble up to the summit. This is why you came! Descent follows a cairned path from the summit, class 2/3, and takes you back to the col between Vestal and Arrow.
