Really really nice climb. One of my favourites, in fact (especially p2). The one drawback was the awful experience we had with a guide who elbowed his way past us as I was belaying George and Marcel up P2 (not slowly at all), along with two other rather more bashful climbers, and he promptly set up an anchor further up the pitch (aka in the way). We figured if he was in such a rush they'd at least be fast, but on the contrary. His client had supposedly chucked up on the 5.9 start, and couldn't jam neither foot nor hand (what a shit guide) and proceeded to add a couple of hours to our otherwise swift climb. What a prat of a man. "I'm from alaska, it's like Canada but with guns*" **but no free healthcare, and an embarrassing tangerine of a president.

Rather a crowded and unenjoyable ascent, with a particularly invasive (and dangerous) Yosemite Mountain Guide playing rope spaghetti and having his suffering second/client unclip (!) our gear to sort his rope issues. If you go for this route, go early!

Really good but i am not used to crack climbing

wnicholson 07/Jun/16 AltLd O/S

The 5.8 hand crack roof is tiny and the crux mantle with no protection possible ankle break fall is easily protectable and there's a massive jug. Not even that hard "Americans need to go to font"- Steve

Did in 4 pitches with some stretching of ropes and a bit of simul climbing on the easy bits. Great route, the mantle move reminded me of todys wall a little bit.

Brilliant climb from start to finish. The first pitch is sustained with great laybacking. The mantel is scary enough to get the blood pumping but not as hard as you think once you commit!

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

Absolutely classic, with a great variety of climbing packed in: layback, crack, slab, overhang, mantle - you name it, it's got it. Led Ps 2 and 4.
