This is a nice line on the lower east face. It starts up the obvious diagonal crack, then veers right at pitch 4 using a miraculous hand traverse. Often wet early in the season. I did the route in July and it was wet but climbable--I've heard it can be totally dry by September.

5 out of 5 stars Perfect route

Though wet and snowy at the top (very scary in climbing shoes getting to raps), this route was awesome. The east face of Longs never fails to provide a great experience!
