Description 

Follow the orange streak left of Alcoa Presents through intermittent finger cracks to the roof, then step right and follow good jugs to bolt anchors just below the summit. Going left at the roof is possible, but harder.

Location 

Start from Alcoa Ledge on the east face of South Peak. Gain the ledge via any of the routes below (Conn's East/Direct is a good warm up) and belay from the left set of bolts.

Protection 

Nuts, small to medium cams. Two bolt anchor at the top of the roof, just below the summit.

Great position, but the climbing is not that good IMO.

Technical face moves around a crack. Thin moves, but reasonable protection throughout.

This is an awesome sustained piece of climbing. Good gear, techy moves, and a combination of face/crack climbing make this a classic in my book.
