Description:

Right of faint's roof. Scramble up 4th class terrain to grassy ledge. Climb through easy terrain staying left of the bulge and exiting through the big V shaped crack formation. This is a good warm up climb and good for teaching trad climbing. The Kochte book says the "Holds are so available that even the most dense climber ought to be able to find the way."
