Start up the slab about 30 feet right of the start of Coatimundi Whiteout, and head for a flake under a nice crack system. The physical crux of the route is just before the first hanging belay as you switch into a double crack system. Climb a shorter pitch from here to another hanging belay at the base of a ramp leading up and left. Climb the ramp to a nice crack leading to the belay station under "The Great Roof". Now for the mental crux! Climb the corner up underneath the roof, and traverse right (there are footholds, you just have to look for them, and it is EXPOSED!!!). At the right edge of the roof, set up an extremely exposed belay on a small ledge, then climb the steep crack above to a small ramp leading up and left to finish on the final crack of Coatimundi Whiteout.

Enjoyed a lot. We were going to do the traverse left under the roof, but we spotted a perigrine in its nest just left of where we would be pulling the lip. Did the easy but exposed traverse right. The lower pitches deserve a rating on the harder side of 5.10. Great route!
