Overview
This is an alternative to the South Face of Washington Column. The climbing is not as classic as the South Face and it's a little harder, but far less crowded. Aside from a few short and tricky sections of aid, the climbing is straightforward. The route is a little harder than the Prow or the Leaning Tower.
