On the left side of the buttress is a discontinuous crack system going up and around a right facing dihedral for three pitches to a large ledge. Then climb the obvios crack in the middle of the fin to a hanging belay below the crux roof. Head right around the roof to a scary face above and belay. WATCH THE ROPE DRAG! Six pitches of gradually easing slabs lead to the top of the rock. These last pitches are some of the most enjoyable and exposed slabs you will ever climb. Remember though you will probably get on them at the typical afternoon t-storm time so be prepared to wait it out or bail.

5 out of 5 stars One of the best South Platte routes

This route exemplifies the Platte-long, adventurous, plenty of slab, remote, with those great old Leeper hangers. The rock isn't always the best on this route, but it is still a grand adventure.
