Here are some pictures heading down from the summit.
Image

This was the “yikes” notch looking at it on the way back. The picture’s perspective is not great. You climb down about 10 feet and there is a small flat rock to step on where you have to swing off to the left with a lot of air below. You can get around this spot on the outside but it is airy too.
Image

There is an anchor here at the “yikes” if you need it.
Image

Nearing the notch again.
Image

Climbing down the third crux. As a note we did not rope going up or rappel going down.
Image

Looking down the second crux.
Image

The couloir.
Image

Climbing down above the first crux.

Lots of great shots and details on the route. Can't wait to do this peak, and when I do, a copy of this TR will be in my pack!

Congrats on nearing the end of your Centennial quest, and good luck on Dallas!
