This route has a long but moderate approach on the Pacific Crest Trail, a bit of routefinding and 4th class to get to the base of the route, and then about 4 pitches of up to 5.6 rock climbing on an exposed ridge. A nice two day alpine rock outing. Don't leave valuables in your car at this trailhead, and don't follow the Beckey route description!
