Classic 3-4 pitch route following the huge right facing dihedral. Gets a lot of sun, even in mid-winter. The crux on the 3rd pitch is protected by a half-driven pin of unknown quality. A must-do route, but best to be solid at the grade on this one. P1) Thin, sustained seam on face (9+). Gear belay or link with... P2) great dihedral climbing to a bolted anchor (9). P3) Loose rock (5.8 R) leads to the crux mantle at the suspect pin. Walk off to the left from here or continue with the fun 5.8 4th pitch.

I climbed the first two pitches last winter and after some convincing I went and finally did the third, cux, pitch. I got a little beta about a blind nut placement to back up the pin. The crux is short and not too bad. Glad I finally went back for the last two pitches.
