Climb the right-side bolted crack up the the slab. Variations exist both right and left of the crack. Crux is the roof-move to the anchor. An (easier) variation to the finish exits up the far right side of the summit with better gear protection.


Right-side route of the obvious slab to the right of the central routes. Shares an anchor with route #8. Rap or walk off.


5 bolts + anchors. Routes 7 and 8 were intended as mixed routes. Small rack of cams up to #3 recommended if you want to protect the runouts, or forgo the gear to make it "sporty". For a separate finish from the left #7 route stay to the right (skipping the last bolt) climbing discontinuous gear-protectable cracks to the anchor.

Less run out than Route 7 to the left, but the more "slabby" moves require more thought. Bring a #.75 (or #.5?) for the top protection.
