This route follows the striking basalt dyke splitting the face and beelining to the summit. There are 22 pitches with climbing to 5.10+ and A3 (only 10 moves of aid, though some of involves hooking on loose rock with poor pro). Some bolt anchors have been damaged by rockfall and some sections of the dyke are extremely loose due to shattered blocks. An extremely bold solo first ascent and the first alpine Grade VI in southwest BC.
