A nice toprope variation which is very independent at the start but gets more squeezed toward the top sharing it's finish with NW Passage.

Climb NW Passage then after lowering to the 2 bolt anchor on top of pitch 1, climb up to the right of the anchor on a very fun series of crimps leading to a wandering path between NW Passage and Path of the Righteous. As the routes squeeze in on you, move left joining the crux moves on NW Passage (last 20-ish feet of the route).

In my opinion this variation climbs better than the original route. Its a bit dirty but would clean up well.


Between NW Passage and Path of the Righteous.


TR for NW Passage anchors.
