From the right tooth. Locate obvious gunsight notch on the back right side of tooth. To reach the route, descend via rappel from gunsight notch (chockstone and convenient pine allow for a bomber rap point.) From the base of the rap, move to the right thirty feet directly under obvious right-facing corner/chimney/flake system. Ascend the right-facing corner/flake/chimney system 45 feet until it is possible to traverse left (Lichen covered rock, but solid juggy holds throughout) and up on into the gunsight notch (50-60 feet.) Clip into the rap anchor to bring your second up from the notch. -M.B 03/08/12
