Start either up the chimney to the left of the large fir tree at the base of the South face and continue up ledgy terrain, or up the overhanging, wide, dirty crack further left (from above the large detached block), and eventually join the prominent vertical dihedral to finish off the climb.


Trad gear. R rated for sparse pro and grounding potential (at least for the chimney to ledge variation) in the first half of the climb.
