Description 

I have also seen this route called "Savior". Not sure which is accurate.

Pitch 1 - Start by climbing a chimney and then traverse right on large ledge. Belay off gear. (5.7)

Pitch 2 - Follow crack from the ledge. This crack bends up and left. There is an old bolt ladder on the right. Hanging belay from bolted anchor. (5.11)

Pitch 3 - Do a face traverse to the left and climb a crack that goes from tight hands - hands - offwidth - chimney. Belay on ledge from bolts. (5.10)

Pitch 4 - Same finish as Jah Man. Climb the face past bolts to the summit. (5.9)

Descent - Rappel Jah Man.


Location 

The route starts on the north face of Sister Superior. Head around the corner from Jah Man. It is just past a bolted line and the chimney is hard to miss.
