This climbs the left-hand face of the South Face. Climb to a knob then up thin, slippery face to the top.
Left side of South Face.
Josh at nearing the crux.

The Lake Tahoe Falcon climbing guide calls this "Knob Job," apparently due to the good sized knob you start on. Used to be 10d until some tiny edges at the crux broke off. For me it requires more leap of faith type climbing than anything else.

I would agree with Josh. I just put my foot on the knob and semi-dyno'd up to put my right hand on the right corner. I was surprised when I didn't fall off. Thin stuff that.
