Description:

Classic 2-pitch line is probably the most climbed route on the pass as well as hte scene of many beginner epics. Scramble up the talus below the west buttress to the base of the obvious twin cracks. Pitch 1 is a short line that jams the hand cracks to a tricky 5.8 traverse to a ledge. Pitch 2 climbs the short, broken corner above.

Route was a blast!! Good gear up to the traverse, which was a bit interesting but fun.
