Start from front side of the pillar by the tree in the corner at the end of the 2nd pitch of Northern Pillar. Step out left onto the steep corner; climb a vertical to its top and traverse left (crux) to a stance on the arete. Jug bash back to the right side of the arete and up to the top. (Great holds, a little pumpy.)

I dont think there is a single move harder than 5.8 on this route but for some reason the top of the initial crack and the traverse are way pumpy. Getting pro in at the crux is strenuous but the ledge below mandates it. Bomber no hands rest on the arete after the crux and then some very fun steep climbing above!
