This route is on the north ridge of the formation "The Three Graces."

Route Description

Follow the north ridge and do a traverse to the "window" - a large crevice. Step across to the summit.

This is a great 5.2, and will test your route finding abilities. Rap down to the east off fixed anchors on the summit.

Essential Gear

Lots of slings for flakes and pothole threads. Bring some medium pro (I've heard Tricams work well). It's really tough to protect this route.
