Rock of Ages, Southeast Ridge. From well left of the col east of the peak, this route was first climbed on June 24, 1979 by George Montopoli and Tim Hogan. After some F5 rock work, the first significant pitch contained F7 and F8 face and crack climbing to the crux of the climb on the second lead. Here a short overhanging flake move was rated as F9. The final lead included an F7 overhanging crack before easier rock took them to the summit scramble. (II, F9.)
