5 out of 5 stars awesome climb!

A great day out climbing with Rob. Amazingly, no-one else on route. Smokey due to forest fires all day; made surroundings surreal... Watch the 5.8 sections down low- tricky! I took a short fall here, then fired the 5.9 roof on lead. Aided the bolt ladder. Wouldn't mind coming back to do again (& trying to free the .10c!).

4 out of 5 stars good views of El Cap, bring a camera

fun route, did the "50 crowded" variation, which everyine says is more fun. Was supposed to be a rest day, so we didn't start climbing til 2. Descent seemed casual, but I'd just done the East Ledges (with haulbags) and the North Dome Gully.
