This route starts just to the right of the steep southeast arete, climbs up the face, and moves left around the arete to finish.

To descend, rappel from Mussy Hooks at the top of Tuxedo Junction.


To reach the start of this route, scramble up easy terrain toward the notch between the Iceberg and East Penguin.


6 bolts

Route finishes to (2) bolt hangers. The Mussey hooks for Tuxedo Junction are 10' to the left and down from the anchors.

Head up good rock for about 9 feet until you can traipse left out to the arete on the crumbliest feet you will see all day. Continue up the arete on sorta suspect rock to two bolt hangers for the anchor.

One way to skip some of the scramble of getting to the base of this route is to do Tuxedo Junction, then head up a few feet the anchor for this route. Hang a couple long slings on the bots and then rap into the base, do the route, then rap the Mussy Hooks on Tuxedo Junction to get back your packs. Route is sorta not worth the scramble to the base.
