Hike Roy Gap Road past the Southeast Corner to the blue-blazed East Face Trail on the left. Follow this trail uphill (passing along the right side of a short rock fin that parallels the East Face) for about 10 minutes to a point just above the Gunsight Notch. Here, cut left on a blue-blazed feeder trail toward the Gunsight Notch. In about 80 yards you’ll come to a 10-foot-high outcrop—carefully boulder up a few slippery 5.0 moves to good ledge. Take the right trail and scramble uphill about 30 yards to the base of Lichen or Leave It and Roux.
