A. Genereux & J. Jones, March 1987
Mixed, standard yam rack with doubles of 2-4", 10-15 long draws/slings, all but last pitch has bolted anchors
Climb used to be runout and never climbed but rerouted now to make a very good climb. Frist pitch goes at 11b which is out of contex with the rest of the route, you can avoid it by the Grillmair approch. Very good protection on above standard rock, a couple of scree ledges but not bad. 10c pitch is on very thin holds but fun, frist 10b pitch has short but well protected crux, the 10a pitchs are very fun and the last 10b pitch has fun moves but once you move into the groove look down!
standard walk down the east side, can rap from all stations but will need the odd biner and cord.

we... and by we, i mean kev, decided to do the first pitch, which trends left up a roof provided by mcconnel's fault itself. the rock on the pitch is a little atrocious and i found the climbing to be difficult by A.G.'s "11a" standards, but after i got smacked around a bit on the ground, kev got his rage on and we got up this stupid thing. the rest of the climb is quite nice, though a bit of a bolt ladder over sections. and it seems odd to be that the climb was heavily retrofitted above the first pitch, but it appears no effort to clean rock or replace fixed gear was made on the first pitch.
