Description:

Nice crack climb with the "killer loose" block (it's been there since @ least the thirties...) on the right side of N face snowshed. Be careful abt the pro on the first twenty feet. 5.7 in the guidebook, mikey C is just wrong abt that.

4 out of 5 stars nice!

Nice feet, cool liebacks and jams, scary "widowmaker" block in the middle, easy cracks above that. Full 60m rope length to top. Great climb!

4 out of 5 stars Devaluation:

Soloed hundreds of times over the decades....was my first 5.8 lead as a kid...1976. Originally rated 5.9, it was downrated twice over the years. I still think it has one 5.8 move, on the lieback section about 20 feet up.

This was fun since I never climb onsights. Great long pitch, cool climb. Belayed Brian off 'biners from top. I hate belaying off biners . . .

5 out of 5 stars stout face move

Did I traverse too soon or too late? The move and a half to get over into the direct route's crack felt like a .9 to me. Feeling proud. :)
