Start low on a sloping ledge, move up to better edges and an easy mantle top out.


Right up the center of the West Face, follow the chalk. The easiest downclimb is via the N.E. Arete.


Pad & spotter.

Kind of an awkward start to an often dirty top out. As you can guess, it's not one of my favorites on the boulder. But, it's a good starting point for some of the traverse variations.

We called this 'Sunshine Superman' (V2+) in the guidebook.
