P1 of the east face
This route also goes free at 5.13d!
P1 - C2 or 5.12c - Aid or free the crack to a sling belay this pitch eats nuts.
P2 - C2 or 5.13d - Aid the crack up past 4 bolts (replaced by Alan Watts on his free attempt). Belay from 2 brand new bolts.
P3 - 5.6 C1 or 5.10b - Aid up the bolt ladder past one old belay to a slab to the summit. Many old bolts on this pitch.
P1 & P2 link with 60m rope. This takes more gear so you might want to back clean a little.
the only crack on the east face
clean rack to 2" heavy on the nuts

No bolts were added prior to the first free ascent, but four quarter inch bolts placed by Gerald Bjorkman were replaced with 3/8" bolts

Yea.... this is NOT the only crack on the East face... Why does Mountain Proj not have any info listed for Rising Expectations (also on the East face...)
