A delightful and aesthetic half-day climb. Begins of AH's long bench; this is the right-hand of the face's two full-height dihedrals. Begin in the corner, work the fluted seams off to the left, then back in the corner for the finish. Walk off right (east). You can fire this route in three long pitches with 60m ropes.

A nice, pleasant 5.7 to a cool summit. It's pretty far back in the Winds, so the nice part is we had the entire mountain to ourselves. It's a long (15+ miles) hike to get there, but to me that's all part of the appeal. Not really many other climbs nearby at the same difficulty, though--I only climbed 2 routes on my 1-week trip. Be prepared to climb harder, or move camp, if you want more climbing.
