Same start as Triple Play, only keep going up and left. You will pass a tree (bomber belay, btw) and go into a chimney section. This route is extremely mungy, but goes all the way up.
I mostly expected it to be an aid seam, but it turned out to be an easy free climb mostly the whole way. It was extremely dirty, long, and fun. 5-7 pitches of climbing (depending on belays).
Go up the class 4 gully to the left of shadow wall, and follow that line all the way to the summit.
Overall rating of the route:
5.4 2 pitches 5.5 3-4 pitches 5.6 1 chimney pitch
Better with a partner
No stars because the route has too many trees and shrubs.
Also, get used to belaying from bushes equalized with a #5 stopper and a 0 TCU, cuz, thats what happens on the second to last pitch.
Also, once you reach a more flat section with a BIG place to lie down (trust me, a rest is good at this point), stop roping up, cuz you are about 100' from the top, and its all 3rd class from there (that is a good place to pack up the rack and start shuttle gear to the top). After that point, you have one 5.5 chimney move (5.3 without a pack) to a trial leading to the top.
Notes: bring two ropes for a couple traversing pitches, and retreat is not an option (at least not a fun or easy one).
