Avg time to climb route: 7 days
Approach time: 30 minutes
Descent time: 5 hours

Overview
This route is located on one of the steeper sections of the Southwest Face, the lower pitches consisting of large-sized corners linked by sections of thin nailing. The climbing on the upper section is broken, vegetated and a pain to haul. Cosmos is a little harder than Dihedral Wall or the Shield and about the same difficulty as Excalibur.
