OverviewFA: Bryan Bird and Joe French, 11/04.
Look for a hand crack in a right-facing corner that leads to triple roofs right of center of the formation. There appears to be a bail bolt next to the last of the three roofs. More Than A Woman breaks right about 50 feet below the first roof in a left-facing ramping corner. (See photo.) The first five pitches are fun, mostly choss-free cracks. Beyond Pitch 5 we tried to stay on steeper rock in hopes that the route would continue to be fun and technically challenging. Instead it turned into a loose wandering adventure. After Pitch 5 it is advised to angle right up to the East Ridge and scramble to the summit on easier and cleaner ground.
Rack: 2 ea .5-3”, 1 ea 3.5-5”, nuts, 2 ropes.
Descent: descend either the east or west ridges into the respective gullies, many rappels required to descend the west ridge. The East Ridge descent is reportedly the better way to go of the two.
