Description 

One of the classics; if not the funnest of the Gap routes. A few mixed pitches brings one to the midsdle of the prominent prow in the center of the face. Climb steep 5.7 jugs(mixed) for a couple pitches and finish on easy mixed terrian which puts you right on the summit. Exposed, fun and as with all gap routes, unique.


Location 

Start at the base of the central coulior and climb approx 250ft up to a point where it looks like fun to traverse right to gain the main rib on the north face; climb up!


Protection 

standard alpine rack, all belays are natural.
