This route climbs the obvious tower/buttress on the left center of Grey Eagle Dome when viewed from below. It ascends cracks, flakes and chicken heads for three fine pitches to the solitary summit of the buttress. No bolts were placed. *Bolts have since then been added to the route in July of 2004, when a party mistakenly thought they were on a first ascent; which is easy to do in this wonderland of featured rock.

Descent Options:

A short rappel off the backside of the summit.
