5 out of 5 stars nice day

long day

i got lost on a pitch and left a piece

climbed with a partner who would remove his shoes on every pitch

would love to do her again in a more fluid style

i hung on the crux

fun factor, what a subjective question

i consider climbing serious and dangerous
fun is for me watching a video or having sex

climbing is fun after the evening bath

3 out of 5 stars :)

Did 3 times. At the crux be easer if you remember position of small step for left foot.

3 out of 5 stars Not worthy of being called an El Cap route!

The climbing is OK at best. Sure, there are a couple of good pitches but much of this route is slab hiking with vague defining features in the middle & up high.

5 out of 5 stars Nice fall route

This was the perfect fall route--sunny and warm. The climb was wilder and better than I'd ever expected; people always talk it down, but it's actually a solid outing for the grade.
