Decent quality backcountry climb with a terrific third pitch. The rock in places is better than it looks from the Kanc. Park at the small clearing and follow a rough trail to the cliff as for Perennial. P1- Start at the very bottom of the clean, right hand slab. At the steep overlap, head straight up (5.9, bolts, crux), or up and left (5.6), both to bolted belays on the slab. P2- Continue easily up the slab to a large bushy ledge. P3- Climb a slab to the steep headwall on good quality rock (5.7) to a tree ledge. P4- move left, then climb a steep corner to the upper slab and a belay. P5. Go left then climb the slab straight up to the top and a bolted belay. You'll encounter a few tricky moves just below the belay. Fun climbing in a stunning wilderness locale. The climb is rated either 5.9 or 5.7 by avoiding the the slab climbing on p1.
