5 out of 5 stars great begginers route

Climbed in 8 70m pitches in under 6 hours. The descent was the crux of the route. It took us over 2 hours and got off trail at some point. It did not feel unsafe but it was very long. Awesome views and endless fun though.

5 out of 5 stars Great romp up good rock

Like everyone else has said pick your descent route wisely and don't try to shortcut it. First half of the climb went unroped, then simuled everything but the last pitch. Great views!

5 out of 5 stars Perfect Day!!

Soloed 1st seven pitches, simul'd pitches 8-13, broke last section into 2 pitches on a 35m and swung leads to the summit.

Only encountered one other party all day. Weather was perfect - low 70's and little wind. We had the summit to ourselves!! The descent wasn't so bad - this time of year there is a fairly established trail if you keep your eyes open.

3 out of 5 stars Easy climb. Long hike in and out.

Easy climb. Long hike in and out. Hike early or it gets hot - approach was longer than book suggested. Left car at 1030am Simuled w/ KC for the first 2/3 of the route. Pretty mellow climb with some nice views. Descended via the main ledge. I don't recommend doing it in the dark. Took longer than the book suggested and we hit nightfall and progress slowed big time. Got back to car around 1030pm. Bring light!

5 out of 5 stars Great climb, good times.

We roped up around pitch 7 and then simul-climbed to the top. Long enjoyable day. I was kind of surprised by the lack of peak from the backside. Followed the ridge to the ledges for the descent.

Views from the top are almost as good as cathedral peak.

5 out of 5 stars John and Bruno

This was an all-day event, it was a great day, but proper plannign is required-sunscreen, water, enough time should be allocated to finish the route and still have enough time to descend safely in hte daylight. 1 hour approach, 6 hour climb, one hour descent
