Description:

Park at base of Bankhead Butress. Follow trail to cliff and move right to small cairn and bolt on face above. Climb more or less straight up with bolts at belays towards large overhangs for about 7 pitches. Nice rock with pebbles on ledges. Below overhangs, proceed to traverse right for 3-4 pitches until the overhangs break and head to top of cliff.

Descent Options:

No easy descent. Either Rappel at P8 below overhangs, or obtain info on Bankhead descent.

3 out of 5 stars 1st climb in the rockies!

Nice long climb with 5.6 moves on almost every pitch except perhaps the long travese near the end. Got lost going down and had to bivouac. A long night...
