right of east face route. climb up to an almost horizontal crack and traverse right then up. You get a few bolts, smc 1/4" and some 50 year old death hanger and some knob tie offs. route is 5.9 in falcon but there is a 10 move at first bolt. pretty adventurous and chossy but way fun. bring pro to 3". many of the knob tie offs are questionable.

3 out of 5 stars Fun, and heady

This is a very good route that requires some route finding and has a 10 move hiding in the middle. Bring sacrifical webbing to rap of the top.

5 out of 5 stars funfunfun

well the route is pretty fun, chossy and adventurous. lots of questionable pro and old bolts. climb to a massive crater to belay out of. better have your head games in check. oh and I dont think this route goes at 5.9, maybe 10b? I have no idea
this might be considered runout also, not sure!
