5 out of 5 stars this is the lowest of themajor formations in a line of towers.Can't miss the jigsaw puzzle face.

This route is so good sling the shallow heads and walk the chickens all the way to splitter and the crux bulge. I like to go right and belay on the arete. p2 run out arete 5.5 to the summit
