A beautiful line that ascends the massive prow just left of Jubilant Song via discontinous cracks and face. Start just right of Jubilant Song on the face and head up for two pitches, then move left through a short chimney, and then out onto the face. Head up the face above via seams and face moves, eventually climbing up a crack that is just right of a right facing dihedral. Easy route finding to the summit.

With Ken from Wash. Thought it more of a 5.9. If you have a full set of ball nuts I would not see it as much of a run out route. I only had one with me on that 4th pitch and still felt comfortable, but it is runout with a ledge below you on that pitch. I combined the 3rd and 4th pitches. See no reason to divide those up. The 5th pitch is almost an immediate traverse right to access that good brownstone rock. The 6th pitch is short and could be soloed. We did not do any switchback to exit out??? just headed for the chimney in our approach shoes and exited through there. Very fast route on Windy Peak. Car to Car, only 6 hours. FAers did a good job cleaning it I thought. Thanks.
