This route starts about 10' right of the line up the Southern Groomsman. It's the obvious obvious seam with a few pockets that leads to the top. A mix of cam and pecker placements will get you to a bolt, then a few more cam/spectre/pecker placements will finally get you to a decent crack in better, but a little hollow rock. Once you're here, it's easy to the summit.


Offset cams, 2-3 sets of peckers, several #1 camalots, #.75 and a spectre. The anchor on top is a bolt and a slung horn, you'll most likely need some webbing.
