Great mountaineering route. A light rack (stoppers and a couple cams) is all you need.

5 out of 5 stars fun fun fun

Did this last winter with my girlfriend. Nine hours car door to car door, and we didn't dally. Be ready for a moderately hard approach. First pitch is really the only one needing protection; if yer confident, you can basically scramble the other "pitches". Even the last one, which looks like yer gonna need to rope up, is shorter than expected and easy (albeit exposed).
