You would definately LOVE the Incredible Hulk then. The setting is gorgous, and by in large the weather is very stable (if there is instability it would be afternoon thunderstorms) but you can be up and down the thing if you do the red dihedral before that is an issue.

It would be too bad to do it as a 1 day trip after flying that far (but it makes what you have to fly with SO much lighter though) since there is so much to do out there, Outguard Spire,....

Also if you are an endurance junkie you can do Clyde Minaret (east face is about 5.7/5.8 and the direct start is better with a pitch of 5.10a and 5.9). It would involve a 9mile approach (if you start real early like at 2 or 3am, and can drive to the trailhead without having to take the bus otherwise it adds significant distance). The climbing goes pretty fast and the descent is a average by alpine standards. Then you would have the walk out. If you leav by 2 or 3 am and hike and climb at a average pace) you could be back to your car between 9pm and midnight.
