Description:

This route begins on the east bench and goes parallel to the east face but around the right hand corner. Follow an excellent layback crack for 3 pitches and then go around the corner at a small roof to the main face. Continue up the flatiron staying to the right of the "U". Consult one of the many guidebooks for a more adequate description. This route is rated "serious" due to the long runouts on the upper pitches. Fortunately the climbing is about 5.4-5.5 in that areas.

4 out of 5 stars Very fun climb

6 long run-out out, fun pitches done as a party of four. First two belays were crappy. Easy route to find. There was a nasty swarm of flies on the summit.
