5 out of 5 stars First High Sierra Climb

Super fun climb! We did it in 15 pitches, including the 4th class ridge near the top (the SuperTopo is off in terms of pitch numbers as well as description of the routefinding crux). The views all around were spectacular. Camped at Third Lake.

4 out of 5 stars Nice climb, good rock

A fun, moderate climb on pretty good rock with great views. Took us a little longer than I had planned on. Camped at Dade Lake the night before. What a great place to spend the night! I stemmed on the crux pitch and didn't find it that bad, even with a small pack. Routefinding issues on pitches 2 and 7, but we managed to recover.

3 out of 5 stars Wrong way at the roof

I went right instead of left. Looked easier, but then required a no-pro traverse back across the top of the roof and up to the first bolt on the slab
