Description:

On the west end of the summit dome, scramble down into the ravine and climb up the chimney and into the eye socket of the face on the rock. Keep your cool and step out onto the nose climbing through 3 or 4 friction moves to a couple of dishes then up to the summit.

4 out of 5 stars Sketchy crux near top

The beginning of the climb was easy as they come, large hand and feet locations everywhere, but when you get to the crux, it gives you the feeling of being pushed off the wall. I was sketchy through the crux, til I solved it. Topped out with kneeing the mantle, rrrr.

Ive eyed this route since we first started coming to the motherlode. Having never actually summited the mountain, i was itching to get up there. This line is unprotected on quality rock. Only a couple moves and your up, but with a 35 foot ground fall potential, I stuck a belay just below in the chimney. Easiest route up the summit.
