Description:

An all-time classic on the West Face. The first pitch is described under the McCarthy West Face Variant. From the belay, the 2nd pitch tackles an ever thinning crack (rightmost of 3 cracks). Stemming and finger locks in the crack to the left make it doable. 95 feet to a shared anchor with El Matador. Continue to the top or rap.
