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.
