Description:

6 bolts 5.7- climb the seam to the right, from the top of the seam scramble left 20 feet to the belay out on the open slab. second pitch 4 bolts 5.8 (these bolts are Fixe 3/8" x 3-3/4" SS double expansion, if you find a loose hanger it's probably from someone stepping on them and lossening the nuts), 3rd pitch: the topo says dirty chute when in reality is a hike through the jungle and its more like a .4. Fourth pitch has two bolts (mostly a run out scramble). There are now rappel anchors that take you from the summit to the base of the south face (~350ft and requires a 60m rope). The third rappel provides a little quality air time.

4 out of 5 stars Back on the street

Spent another great day on McKinley.
Easy Street made for a fun fist multi-pitch for some of the climbers. From the top of Pitch-2 climbing the overhang on Wipeout (.9-.10a) made for a very fun finish rather than taking the gully to the right. Great view of Diamond Peak with snow from the top.

3 out of 5 stars Easy Street

Easy Street is not my favorite route on McKinley but it does offer a good adventure as an easier multi-pitch route that requires a leader to do a little more thinking than yoyoing. When the Peregine Traverse is not available, this is a route UCC puts their students on once they've had three days of outdoor experience to give them a feel for following on a multi-pitch. And making the 4 rappels from the top down the south face between HangTen and Testosterone Monkey is awesome.
