Start at the eldo ashram, and warm up with smooth running along the old railroad grade.

Turn left on the Fowler trail into eldorado canyon and behind the bastille.

Take the bastille climbers trail down to the road, cross the bridge, and climb up behind the redgarden wall.

Sustained stone steps and ladders takes you to the base of the Dirty Deed chimney.

5.6 chimney climbing for 50m puts you on the red ledge.

Take care with loose holds in the chimney.

Traverse the chimney around swansons arete to the base of another chimney.

Following cracks on the face, trend up and right towards a tree.

Step out onto the exposed face next to the tree into a crack system.

Up the cracks to another large ledge, and then up a thinner crack to the summit. Then down the mild 5th class east slabs to the Hawk-Eagle ridge, and down the gully between the bulge wall and the wind tower.

Back up the bastille trail and then out to the ashram.
