Description:

Start in the large recess in lowest portion of face. Like the book says, try to stay left. We went too far right after first pitch and I was running it out quite a bit on 5.8 face and simul-climbing. Felt solid, just pick the right way. If you see the final headwall wierd big cracks with trees growing out of them, just go left of that and you will find the final L facing dihedral. The Supertopo for this route is excellent and will keep you on track.

first technical (class 5) backcountry route. supertopo matched up almost perfectly with what we found. nevertheless, we were slow, and didn't get back to the cg (bubbs/charlotte creeks) until 10:30.
