The first climb of this face was done on October 20, 1974 by Walt Vennum, Phil Warrender, and me; the route is on the right side (long side) of the face, near where it corners to the south. The route is all face climbing, much on small holds, with a shortage of protection opportunity, especially on the first pitch. About 6 pitches. NCCS II; F7.
