Hard to believe this was first climbed in 1951, long before the advent of any modern gear or shoes. This is a superb, but serious route, blending delicate and sometimes strenuous moves, a great slab climb. Starting just left of the center of the slab, follow a slight groove to reach the small "rescue ledge" (so named for the number of climbers that have asked for a "rescue rope" to be dropped down to them. Carefully traverse right until you reach another good ledge, then follow the awkward holds to the top. A *****FIVE-STAR***** CLASSIC!!!!!
