The route, described in the 2002 American Alpine Journal, ascends the northernmost of the Continental Towers. More of a fin, as the last three pitches are done mainly a cheval along a knife edge ridge. The route containted excellent rock, with a truly hair raising and exposed crux. Send me a message for more details/topo. The route can be done easily in a day from a camp in the Little Sandy drainage.
