This hard classic starts part way up the 1st pitch of the Ellsworth-McQuarrie route. Traverse left (crux) and climb 2 face pitches to the Pedestal Ledge. 2 more pitches straight up (5.11c) lead to the top of pitch 5 of Butcher Knife. The last pitch climbs left, making an improbable mantle near the top. Excellent rock.
