Comments: Well here's the route according to Barlett's Guide:

" -- move left around a corner (passing a bolt) to a left-slanting crack leading to the top -- "

Comments: One can also see the second pitch of White Slab, which climbs up mainly the edge of the big triangular slab above and just left of the leader.

There's also a climber on the left on Longland's Climb.

Comments: On the north side of the boulder directly opposite the Mommys Boys Face. Start on the left, close to the ground for most of the traverse until forced to move up and onto a high ledge towards the right. There's also a variation that continues low at a much hight rating.

Comments: Paul thanks for the GIS map - Thunderbird Wall is mis-located; it should be opposite Claim Jumper Wall. Either that or rename it as Skyy Slab.

Comments: You can see our tracks heading up left first, but the huge cornice gave us second thoughts.

Comments: Years ago, followed the "walk off" advice of the old orange Bishop Area Rock Climbs guide and got into all kinds of trouble.

Comments: Adequate coverage to snow climb, but either very hard snow or crusty powder over ice - lots of French technique employed, deeper towards the ridge line, with about a foot or so of powder over hard snow/ice, ice-axe penetration either very little (due to shallow snow) or required reasonable effort.
