The route begins beneath a series of three overhangs,the highest and largest of which is cut through by a hidden chimney. From the bottom of this route looking up there is a large "V" at the top of the face. Ascend a crack to a small ledge 10' below the first overhang or belay from the middle of overhang. Continue up the crack mounting the overhang, traverse right one column to another crack and surmount the second half of the overhang.Continue up over the second overhang, ascend the deep chimney then scramble to summit. First known ascent by Dale Loring and Scott Schmidt in May 1969. Did not place any bolts!
