When it's too cold to climb the east face, hike around the corner for this one. Sunny and interesting with no crowds are the good things about it and very loose and grainy rock are the bad things... An interesting exposed start leaves you looking down 40 feet of uprotected chimney before you set off into the loose flakes above. The crux is reaching the horizontal crack midway up the climb.


A selection of smaller aliens and a few midsized cams for the first half of the route. There are two bolts on the last 30 feet of the summit slab, seemingly for the "Northwest Chimney" route. There is a two bolt rap anchor at the top. The bolts are all new (recently replaced it seems)
