This route is especially great for non-climbers to enjoy a challenge.

The photo posted by dman is not of Ellen's Descent, but of the standard rappel route on the north face.

so why is there a picture of you rappelling in the fucking guidebook section if it isn't even part of Ellen's Descent. No one gives a bloody shit about your broken wrist that's keeping you from climbing 5.6...Last night I ate my girlfriends tampon, i thought of you...pussy.
