Did it last week with my buddy, 13 hours C2C including waiting behind a party, not too bad! Great climbing through and through, don't do this as your first sierra route because it will make all the others seem dreary! Not as difficult as I had built it up, after pitch 4 you are pretty much done with any hard climbing. The 10a splitter is straight forward, great pro, the few 5.9 sections are short and well protected, the 5.8 chimney at the top is really like a 5.6 blocky thingy...
Oh, I'm 5.8 160lbs and I BARELY fit through that keyhole thingy. If I was 15 lbs heavier I would probably have to tie the rope around my waist and hand off my harness to fit. It was TIGHT.
take extra in the 1.5" size for the red dihedral (green camalot) and link the first two pitches. GREAT climbing through and through, descent was NTB. If you practice swift climbing on lower elevations and easier routes (which most people do not I notice) it is VERY doable in a day - anytime I onsight over 10c is a GOOD day on a single pitch, this felt very doable as a long alpine route. Build fast belays, don't hang out on them, and second swiftly - this route is a blast! Can't wait to train hard and come back to do positive vibes!
