4 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

Just the first pitch, after doing Streaker Spire on a late afternoon that turned cold and windy quickly.

4 out of 5 stars Ascent note

Stellar first pitch was very strenuous, glad I wasn't leading it. Subsequent pitches had a fair amount of bad rock, especially the last two pitches. However, from the topo in "a cheap way to die" I think we may have been off route for the last two pitches.
