Hi Dave,

Route description and topo in Mclean's guidebook and in (much older Campbell's guidebook).

cheers,
Steve

If looking for a fun trad route without the crowds of Life on Earth, "The Nose" 5.9 stays right of LoE all the way to the summit, traversing diagonally right on ledges near the top. It's a pretty good route that deserves way more traffic than it gets.

Re: the Nose. Thanks. Will check it out. Found Solar System to be very loose and approaching an R rating, given the lack of good gear placements on most of the pitches. Lots of psychological 'pro' though.

Is there a topo or route overlay?

I climbed it years ago following the drawn topo in the 1985 Jim Campbell Squamish guide. That worked well. The photo topo in the 1992 McLane guide shows it traversing off right at the top too low, on the wrong set of ramps.
