Description:

This is a fun low angle route on the south side that can get you away from the South Face crowds, at least after you pass them at the Kor roof. Easy to tick off in a day, with pretty easy aid and quick free climbing up to Dinner... Also, my buddy James replaced several of the anchors that were questionable, and the rivet pitch is more or less pretty bomber now...

4 out of 5 stars Fun on Skull Queen

My buddy David and I drove in from LA, climbed to Dinner Ledge, then fixed a couple pitches and spent the night on DL. We pushed to the top and rapped the South Face and spent another night on DL. Very warm weather and lack of water killed me on this one. Hydration issues and ascending our free hanging 8.2 mm rope over the sharp Kor roof edge (duct tape!) were the crux. Fun!
