This route is on the climber's far left side of the dome. L to R, it appears as the first sporting quality route, both from a distance and upclose.


This is a nicely done route of 2 pitches, with bolted belays. Most of the climbing is 5.7ish

P1: there are 2 closely spaced bolts for the crux, barely off the deck. Follow bolts to bolted belays, supplemental pro available. 7b's, 160', 5.9. The crux does have a 5.10- minus feel to it, but is only 1or 2 moves well protected, straightforward.

P2: 7b's, the last one easy to miss on easy terrain. No gear opportunities. Jog left after the 3rd bolt. Don't head for the obvious belay on the right, half way up. 170-180', 5,8 at most.

Easy and beautiful walk off up and then off to climber's left. You can stay along the dome margin after descending the slabs and end up at your packs without getting cliffed out.
