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.
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.
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!
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
