Description:

One of the crowning jewels of ECM (see topo). P1 (5.6)climb the left facing corner and move left under small overhang to tree or crack belay. P2 (5.6 or 5.9) follow left facing corner until it merges with huge flake (5.9) or work crack system and huge flake (5.6). Both variations lead to arrowhead ledge. P3 (5.10a) From Arrowhead ledge, move right out onto and up the arete (bolt at ledge and on arete).

5 out of 5 stars so... much... fun!

P1 a little run out, P2 spectacular w/ overhang undercling finish, P3 rough start and what seemed like an endless face to the summit.
