The first part of the climb can be soloed and go's at 5.0, the second part is 5.6 and takes .75-3 and a long sling to tie off a nice knob.
Yellow is all tuckered out/tuck and roll. red is t...

If any one knows the name of the route and the FA info please chime in. I didn't see it in either rushmore guidebook (old or new) but i am certain that this must have been climbed in the past.

We did that line back in the 70's. Didn't give it a name. Arete to the right is higher quality but lacks pro. Feel free to put some on it if you wish.
