Description:

A much better start to High E if you are solid in the grade. At the base of the first pitch of High E follow a sloping ramp up and right, then up to a belay ledge. Head back left almost to the outside corner, then up (crux) to a smallish belay stance. Follow the arete to the High E belay.

Second Second ascent by: juliacoreyburns on 2011-07-02 (View Climbing Log)

5 out of 5 stars arete pitch is sweet!

climbed with Dave. he led P1/P2, i led P3 arete, and he led last pitch of Doubleissima to finish. entire climb is just super, but for me highlight was finally getting to lead the beautiful arete up to the ledge... one of the most atmospheric gunks pitches for sure!
