Great route. Scotty led the odd pitches and I led the even pitches. Pumped out and hung at the off fingers crux on the last pitch because I wasn't confident enough to go for it. Need more Yosemite experience.
First pitch is pumpy, second is cruiser even when wet (as it was) but no gimmie. The last pitch was an absolute gem. Burly flairing chimney with a 1 1/4 tight hands crack in the back that just went on for days. The tight fingers topout is hardly the crux. I was actually relieved when I finally got to it. Linked the last two pitches to finish in 3 pitches which was clearly more fun. Bring extra .75 C4's next time. I had to run it out a few times on the last pitch. Total Badassness!!!
Followed a good climber up this route and I hung it a million times. This thing kicked my ass from top to bottom but I definitley thought the top 5.11a pitch was the easiest of the route. It is flaring, awkward, not very fun and likely the hardest route I've ever climbed. Tape up, this thing will eat your hands alive. Good luck!
