Can be climbed as one very long pitch, but rope drag makes it so that splitting it up into three pitches makes more sense. Starts inside a dihedral and has everything from crimps and finger cracks to chimneying and off widths. The crux is pulling through the overhanging offwidth near the top.


Right up the big chimney crack system on the west face as you approach the wall.


Somewhat runout in spots if you don't bring big gear. Bring long runners to reduce rope drag.
