The final 200 foot south face.
Yellow is a class 3 scramble and not difficult. The red section is class 4+ and where parties may want to rope up. After the traverse (in the middle of the red section), there are two chimneys. The left one has a big chockstone roof (near the top arrow in the photo). Don't traverse too far to the right. Begin climbing before reaching the second chimney (to the right of the upper red section in the photo). The red section is the crux. The blue (class 3) can either traverse as shown or climb slightly higher and traverse at a level above. The final section (class 3) cannot be seen and is on the north side of the mountain. The light blue arrows are rappels. Once on the face, occasional cairns will help guide the way.
