The East Facing route (also called The Illness) as the face was approached and attempted three times before it was finally climbed. Fred Beckey once said, "you'd have to be sick to go in there 3 times". A splitter crack system ascends the middle of the wall. Descend the route via many rappels. IV-V, 5.10, A3. Excellent route by Garrett, Chilton, and Hokanson.
