Description:

This may or may not resemble the route described in Kelsey's guidebook. Begin fifty feet up the obvious grassy ramp on a left-facing flake. Work up and left, passing a prominent roof via cracks along its right & some great corbel-pulling. The next pitch works out left above another roof (exposed!), then blasts up a viciously-overhanging, short RF dihedral that somehow manages to check in at low 5.9-ish. Again, a bit of straight-up climbing in corners leads to a long, downward & leftward traverse (protect your second!) that lands you on the left-hand ridge, at what looks from Middle Bonneville Lake like a letterbox. From here, cut back right up ledges until you hit 3rd Class rock just shy of the summit. Descend via easy scrambling down either side of the dome.
