This is a great route for a 5.7 or 5.8 climbing party in search of some adventure. Bring double ropes to rap or rap diagonemesis down the back side. Hard to find the start of this one. Hike up past the dome and do the easy corner up the back side, then bust up the prow for several pitches with totally arbitrary belays to the summit. Fun. A bit loose in places.

We wanted to try another start. Didn't find it and ended up wandering up and traversing left on two long pitches to the saddle. Would not recommend this start. Next time I will hike to the original start. Sounds better. Then the rest of the prow pitches would be just as enjoyable. Lovely climb and exposure. Climb the cleanest rock and decent protection will appear. Reminds me of the Dolomites in commitment.
