Description:

2 pitches, 5.9 & 5.10b/c, Touted by many as the best route on the West Face this route never fails to please. Pitch 1) starts with a boulder move then follows a subtle up the face to a bolted anchor (w/chains) under the overhang. Pitch 2) Step up and right into the corner, stem onto the weakness and engage some thought provoking movement to a final boulder problem crux before topping out. This is a timeless classic. FA: Rusty Baillie, Bob Ordner

5 out of 5 stars Excellent 2-pitch climb

First pirtch is text book without many issues... watch for loose holds. Second pitch more crimpy with the crux just below the top.
