Sat on rope due to stuck gear, sore feet and unable to figure out a couple of sequences on the roof and mantel sections. The roof was the hardest for me me, but P1 is really committing and need to just go. It's a very long layback and run out in the middle section. Good lead from Peter. Mantel not bad once you know the move.

I found this pretty hard, with the first pitch being the hardest. The mantel crux on pitch 5 was pretty easy and overhyped. Led pitches 1,3,4,5.

The bottom lay back pitch seemed the crux. Polished and a little unexpected low down. The roof and the mantleshelf pitches were both excelllent.

Brillant route, 5 great pitches thought the first was probably the crux. Topped out about 5pm with the sun setting over towards El Cap and a great view down the valley towards the Half Dome - great belay position and good times
markfairbank - Lead O/S - 18/Oct/10 with Laura Turnbull
graeme & i did the right hand variation to start (10a?). kyle & elissa went for the standard start. took all day to do the route because of norweigan epic going on above us. waited hours on belay ledges, ran out of water, got off the top at dusk and descended in the dark. brilliant!
