Overview
Climb the path of least resistance. Begin 150 feet left of the toe of the south ridge in cracks that lead to a big roof crack 400 feet up. There are many ways to go. Go three pitches up a crack system tucked in a cleft to a big ledge. We walked around to the south side of the ridge and climbed the easiest- looking crack to reach the top of the first wall of the formation. Hike and scramble until you need to rope up. Discontinuous cracks trend left to right to the summit.

Rack: 2 ea to 4, 1 ea 5, nuts, 2 60m ropes.

Descent: reverse the route.
