5 out of 5 stars Check the wind forecast

We got hit with crazy cold wind. Fingertips,toes and legs were really cold and we almost bailed but pushed it to the top finishing on the 4th/5th class left of the chimney.
I will do it again but will look at the weather forecast more carefully.

5 out of 5 stars crowded!

and with good reason. you can't go wrong on this route. that said, there were several sections that were runout (we didnt take the "main" route since it was jammed up, so we just kind of mosy-ed around where we needed to. come solid on 5.7 terrain and move fast. brilliant route with a fun summit. the descent was not bad at all.

5 out of 5 stars First Alpine climb

Great Rock
we underestimated the approach time,
and let a party pass us after the first pitch.
ate up alot of time , only finished 3 pitches and bailed
ready to do it again
