  • Challenging
  • Elevation Gain: 3,900 ft


The route is known for loose rock and the rappels can be especially dangerous.

Preference given to Basic Grads, especially those with experience climbing or scrambling loose rock.  This is a strenuous objective.  We will car camp and do this in one day (Sat or Sun depending on which has better weather).   The climb will likely take 16 hours car to car.

Please let me know you read these leader notes by describing your comfort-level and experience on loose rock.
