Description:

Start to the right of the steeper direct start, around a corner a few feet. Keep moveing up and left until you reach the nice vertical hand crack. Belay just under the obvious wide crack. Climb mostly on the face avoiding the O.W. crack where possible past a fixed pin. When the crack changes direction and starts to head right, traverse on large dikes around the arete and up moderate face climbing. Belay in the crack or just barely run it to the top on a 60m rope (Literally 0 feet to spare) Nice route.

5 out of 5 stars Sweet climb! So much fun.

Led p2. There was less runout than I had expected and it was on all easy ground. Don't work yourself up over this one & just keep singing!

4 out of 5 stars Great fun!

Rope-solo ascent using a Soloist. Great cracks down low, fun face higher up. Sure wish I'd had time to then continue on up to Traveler Buttress...

4 out of 5 stars Enjoyable

A couple of tricky moves at the pitons on the first pitch. Great 5.7 climbing onward.
