Description 

This is a route with a venerable history, having been established in the 1920s. It's a classic line, but in truth it's a bit short. Good pockets make it possible to bridge most of the way, then great jams to fimish.


Location 

This is the obvious crack in a corner on the right side of West Buttress. Enter the groove from the left, starting up a little pillar. Walk off.


Protection 

A few cams (2.5" to 3.5") give excellent protection.
