This is one single 60-70m pitch, start from a sloping, snowy ledge at the base of the main crack. It has a little bit of everything, mixed climbing, a small smear of ice, hand-jams, and jugs. There is no obvious crux, it is fairly sustained climbing. You will top out onto a sharp tower where the funkiness begins. We ended slinging the whole tower as an anchor then a belayed down-climb to the saddle and up the next tower on the ridge, where you can then walk-off.


This ascends the obvious weakness right of Real Crabapples. See the photo.


A single rack of cams, nuts, and hexes. There are no anchors.
