Central Buttress on South Face. Begins at a higher level than surrounding rock. Steep awkward strata, overhangs, and a prominent blackness make this the prominent line. Forcing past overhangs gives pause for thought on the first buttress. Second half of route follows prow up a series of towers. Pinnacles on upper section were avoided on the right side during the first ascent. Finish on the fangs. Truly a feast. Cruxes too numerous to mention. 550m vertical, grades 15-19.
Actions Speak Louder
