The first time I tried this was down climb. I didn't know the exact spot to descent but made it without using ropes. I scrambled down east face instead of standard north face. East Face
I think north face route is easier up/down. North Face
I don't remember how many times Date Climbed: Jun 23, 2007
Great route! More entertaining than the ever boring final set of North Loop switchbacks. We like to take this shortcut expecially during our three peak hike.
Enjoy my slideshow of one of our hikes of this type : Three Peak Hike ( Mummy- Charleston- Griffith)
