An alternative start to South Face(5.7+) that follows a series of cracks. After the third pitch, follow South Face the rest of the way up from the ledge before the south chimney(Jungle Ledge). There's one bolt at the end of pitch one.


Right before the start of South Face, when approached from the east gully.


Standard Rack. One bolt.

This is a very worthwhile entry into the South Face finish, first pitch goes from fingers to small hands with a short seam section pushing you onto face climbing. The second has less pro availability, but great exposure and requirement for cool.the third is mostly a contrived connection to the South face climb, but has a few nice moves trying to suck you into a corner.
