I've done this one three times over the years. We witnessed an infamous helicopter fatality from a perch below the fourth pitch. The first crux is 15 ft into the first pitch. Above is Yosemite funk corner climbing. The famous fist pitch follows--165 ft (a couple of #3 and #4 do it). The stem pitch up high has a poor belay. The pro protecting the hard stem is #2 and 3 lowe balls (or RPs). Above the stem is fingers, and then a section of hard laybacking to bypass a very hard crack. One rejoins the crack with a hard thin hands move. The top part of this pitch is hollow and probably best not protected. The last roof can be tamed with a #4 camalot overhead.
I'd always lusted at the 10c splitter fist crack on crucifix from the neighboring NE Buttress. I finally got to do the route with a stronger partner. I got spanked badly but still enjoyed the mid 5.10 cracks immensely. My leads were often quite French I'm afraid.
