Description:

A quality route, on the right side of the buttress in the obvious orange dihedral. This is a variation to the standard route that avoids the chimney. P1: head up the corner to a large ledge at ~80 feet. P2: move left around a bulge and continue up the corner; ~30 feet below the chimney, traverse out right a seam to another big ledge. P3: traverse ~10 feet right to double cracks, up over a blocky section and out right again to a finger crack/right-facing lieback, to a huge slightly sloping ledge. P4: head up over easy terrain to a final 5.6 section and the summit. Descend off the back.
