11th-12th Pitches- 80m- 5.7/ The best rock on Mount Louis? I have been up three routes as of 2009 and it might be. This is the same finish for several routes, same I took for the Gmoser Route. Ignore the chimney and climb the beautiful cracks out on the face to the right. I ran this a full 60m past the fixed belay near the top hoping my belayer would get the hint so I could go ahead and finish the day. But he did not. Thus a junker pitch is needed to finish the route if you pitch it out. The only problem with this fine finish is that for some reason, folks want to waste their pitons. If there ever was a great steep gear pitch to learn trad on this is it, but it is currently full of fixed gear.
