0 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

Much better route than the south face, the climbing is more sustained. The crux was the pitch leading up to the prow, slightly overhanging, but well protected. Climb right underneath the prow and over the notch to gain the east face. A short travese puts you on the South Face route, you will know you are on route when you see all the fixed gear. Enjoy!
