Ed Connor and I started in the gulley on the left (not on the right as Secor says) and climbed up about a pitch and a half before finding a way to traverse out right onto the face. We paralled the arete, thinking we were following the old Beckey route. Near the top, there is a headwall with many fluted cracks. We went straight up and right (not left as Burns and Porcella show), for some 5.9. The crux was a move around a big chock stone on the last pitch. Cool Grade IV, but LOTS of loose rock.
