Rounded arete with bouldery crux at the 4th bolt. Follows the crest of this arete to the base of MRC. You will need to set an anchor at the top. This used to be a mixed route, but 3 intermediate bolts were added by one of the first ascentionists in 2007. The final bolt protects the second from a potential, precarious swing in the event of a slip.

Descent Options:

Downclimb the slabs/gullies just to north of the route.

4 out of 5 stars Good Start to MDC Direct

This is a fun start for MDC. Really slabby and kind of tricky.
