5 out of 5 stars 2/3's of an ascent

Led a simul party of three (a new dad and an relative rock newb) up to the second summit, before we had to turn back because it was getting late in the day :(
Amazing views, and a fun little romp. Great exposure as well.

5 out of 5 stars Awesome Time

We simu-climbed the whole thing except the last pitch (which someone was one), so we did the 5.9 option. It was good.
