Description:

Take the West Face Approach to the northwest shoulder, the climb starts at the top of the shoulder. Pitch 1 (100 ft) unusual finger & hand crack, quite off-balance (10a). Pitch 2 (160 ft) Endless tips laybacking, as clean and sustained as tower corners come (11a). Rap the route after the second pitch or do two pitches of 5.7 climbing to the summit.

Led p2. Placed 10-11 pieces, mostly stoppers. 1 or 2 cams. Lots of laybacking off good jams

Haven't been on the second pitch but the first pitch is an excellent 10a. Well worth doing.
