If someone would draw a line showing where hand jive goes it would be an alright topo

It's a good question. I started in one spot but then all the puzzle pieces of the Hand Jive topo didn't fit.

Here's a line that seems to work with the topo; warning: never been up there. Looks like a cool line.

That's about where I figured it would go based on the topo as well, but when I was at the base I didn't see an obvious start unless I wasn't far enough north off the saddle

And it seems by where the line goes I didn't go far enough north

By the photo, it appears to be a complex face. And reading topos is a black art. If you get back on it, send an update! :-)

The first pitch is hard to find (read Nathan's comments: mountainproject.com/v/hand-jive/107432246 ). Be sure to stay south of the actual arete line.

And bring a bolt kit to add at least one bolt to the belay at the top of the first pitch. The existing bolts are old!
