Description:

The longest route in the Boulder area. Start at the very bottom of the face, climb a blunt rib that angles up to the right to where it fades. Tehn, climb directly through its middle (5.7). Climb up and right for a long way, and join the Standard East Face Route at the South Bowl.

4 out of 5 stars Fletcher Jones

This is a great route to practice trad multi pitch skills. The view on top is amazing. It was easier to rappel off the chains for the west face than make it to the final I-bolt.

5 out of 5 stars East Face South?

So I found this route on another site they called it East Face South rated 5.5. Although their description says to circumvent the roof going left for 5.5, which I did. However I did not see any bolts anywhere on the climb until I got the summit. I had run outs of 100', not by choice. This is all not to say I didn't love the climb. I wasn't expecting an bolts until I read this description a day later. I was expecting some more gear though. All around a great outing.
