Description:

Not sure it's the greatest, but it's definitely a great route. Begins below the left-facing corner below an obvious, big roof right of Mr. Gone. Pitch 1 traverses left and climbs the face above the corner, going right around the roof and then up the small cracks to a small belay ledge. Pitch 2 climbs a long, narrow left-facing corner to another roof. Surmount the roof on bomber jugs and belay atop it. Pitch 3 climbs a crack left of the belay to an easy left-facing dihedral. Belay on the right after a full 165' rope-length. Pitch 4 face climbs and jams the final headwall to the summit.
