The above link is the same S. Face route but Dean has provided a route line. I was loosely following that line. The wetness made the final gully a bit more interesting.. Did two 30-meter rappels (2 x 30m, 8mm ropes) on descent. If it's dry then we would only need 1 rappel. But still, by "Rockies standard" I would say it's an easy climb, rather than a scramble (felt even harder and more sustained than the W. Ridge of Pigeon Spire for a quick comparison).

I did not use, but rock shoes would be helpful (if dry) as a lot of the holds/ledges are down-sloping, and expect some severe exposure.
