There are several varations to this 12 pitch classic. The 5.9+, two pitch start can be avoided by accending the talus field to the Ken Clyde Notch where the 5.5 traverse starts. A FA attempt was made in 1952 by Don Harmon, who completed the first two pitched before rapping off. The route was completed in Aug. 1962 by Allen Steck, George Steck, and John Dorsey.
