Note: it is arguable if this would qualify as an Intermediate Rock route (3 linked pitches with a 5.x move in each) or just an Intermediate Mountaineering climb. The technical portion of this route is grade III, and takes several hours even when simul-climbing. The middle section of the route is the most difficult with some 5- moves here and there. Northwest Forest Pass required at trail head.
