Alternatives on the upper pitches of the SW Corner. The purple line is the money. The pink variation is another way I've climbed it. The red line is Guy H's line.  <br /> <br />One warning is that I've taken a variation at the beginning of pitch 4 by heading up a 30 ft runout and traversing above a roof across at an overlap. It's exquisite exposure this way.

The purple variation is stellar. Best pitch I have climbed in that whole area.

The purple line is one of the best pitches of alpine rock in the Park. We belayed where the red line starts (nice ledge) and started on red, then cut over to purple after 25 feet or so. This version was very well-protected and 5.8 or so. The short finger crack at the top is also excellent and probably has the hardest moves of the whole climb (5.10), but it can be avoided if you're just trying to get off at that point.
