This three pitch route follows a series of corners on the West side of the Steeple. Pitch 1 Start on the large ledge below the first pitch of the Regular route. Climb the easy step approach past the hand-crack and through the trees and up and left towards a pair of right leaning ramps. Go right on the first ramp system and traverse r under a dirty arch. (Extra long runners) Sketch up the orange and black right-facing corner past a couple of pins and some small gear. Work right along good foot and hand holds ot a stance below a left facing corner that ends on a scree covered ledge. Climb the short corner to the ledge, and go straight back then rightup a blocky area to a tree anchor.40ft,5.10a Pitch 2.

Belay from bolts on a sloping ledge system, below a short corner and roof crack(The Mad Hatter5.11b). Pitch 3. From the bolted anchor, below the left-facing, leaning corner, step right and climb the right-leaning ramp/corner, past a steep section where the crack "jogs" to the right.
