Description 

This is the descent route for climbs going to the summit of the dome. It also makes for a great scramble in its own right.Start on the left hand side of the dome and follow weaknesses and ramps up to the summit. The route never exceeds 4th class but a fall in many spots would be fatal.

Protection 

Scramble, no pro.

a must do after climbing cosmic wall.

It really isn't 4th, but easy fifth. half way up there are two sections of featured dikes that are really fun to climb. or bypass the first dike section by going right around the corner to a gully. use the gully to decend.

the route picture here may be inaccurate. summitpost has some better pics and description of the climb.
