5.8 crux off the ground. Follow shallow flaring groove to horizontal finger crack. Move left and pull onto ledge. Continue up 4th class terrain for 50 feet (joining North Ridge route) and belay at a blocky area below summit. Scramble to the summit via a low angle yet exposed arete (easy 5th class) to access rap anchors.
The route farthest up hill on the West Face. Around the corner from the North Ridge route.
Several small to medium sized nuts. Cams to 2 inches. Double length runner to sling huge xenolith.

You can rap off the first belay station, but it's totally worth it to scramble up the 4th class rock pile and up the 5.5 traverse to the summit. The 360 degree view is out of this world!

start is much harder than 5.8 IMO, but just for a few moves, so don't let it scare you off the climb. 1 star for climbing + 1 star for summit.
