This is the obvious splitter on the West Face. 3 pitches, 5.10 hands, 5.11 fingers to fatty, and 5.6 runout chimney. The route can also be easily but awkwardly aided clean at A1(and the crux usually is), but bring at least 6 hand sized cams or you will have to backclean like a madman. Excellent belay ledges-a good moderate tower for those looking to start tower bagging for real.

Super sandy and not the greatest route. 1st pitch was good and fun, easily freed. 2nd pitch crux is really thin. Rack= doubles to #3 Camalot, 1 #4.5 (old style) (free rack)

Great route (cough, cough). Bring at least 6 #2 camalots for the first pitch (or 4 with extra in #1 size). Include a #5 or some Big Dudes too.
