Andrew turning a corner


Route starts on the far right side of the face, at a splitter finger crack in perfect white granite. This is the 10b crux right off the ground (or snow). The angle eases on the second pitch and follows a crack in the slab, reminiscent of the first pitch on Fairview's Regular Route. After this, the adventure begins...

The topo is very accurate, but expect minor route-finding issues especially on Pitch 5. We were only the 2nd party on the route, and bailed on the 3rd class after the technical pitches. QT still needs a proper 2nd ascent!


Rack of doubles from small stuff to 3" was useful. No wide sections, no fixed gear.
