L to R R to L Alpha
I don't think this route is quite as good as the Backcountry guide 3 star rating suggests, but it's still well worth doing. The first pitch isn't bad. The second is very good, but maybe not one of the best on the mountain as I was hoping for. The third is a 5.4 blip.
Head down the south gully (see area description), hugging the wall. Town Without Pity is the first route you come to. The obvious feature is the attractive right-leaning, right-facing (rather than left-facing as shown on Kerry's topo) corner on pitch two. Pitch one begins below the right-most and most sharply defined of several flake systems, well to the right of the start of pitch two.
Standard rack with emphasis on smaller sizes. A 4 friend or equivalent is useful at one spot on each pitch, but is not essential.
