This fine route starts on the bush filled west face. I was amazed such a fine route existed on such a bushy face ( no actual climbing through bushes however.) Hike to the base of the west face and the climb starts down low on the slab/arete. You will be able to spot the bolts on the first pitch. Pretty much climb the arete all the way up the formation. All pitches have sections of bolts, but be ready to place some gear in between. A Two and a half star route in my opinon, (ruckmans give it two). This is a grade III.

Really fun. Supplement draws with light amount small cams. Now posssible to descend South Face with one rope in 3x 30m rappels to the patina face routes. Then another 2 short rappels to the ground.
