This 4 pitch route is an obscure Eldo classic, climbing the obvious prow on the left side of the formation. P1) Easy, but loose rock leads to a great 5.9 handcrack. P2) Crank up past a bolt (crux) then right to a hard to protect seam. Make commiting, pumpy 5.9+ moves with 20 foot ledge fall potential to a good RP placement. Continue upward on runout 5.8/9 climbing with occasional gear placements. P3) Strenuous finger crack through a bulge (5.9) leads to easier climbing. P4) Low 5th class to the summit

Stellar classic! We replaced the ancient bolt protecting the crux.
