PTPP and I did New Dawn and then Tribal Rite to the summit. There were about seven days of rain and snow storms while we were up there (in JUNE). The wind coming off Clouds Rest and Half Dome was quite cold. We brought so much food and water, we could afford to just sit in our tents and watch parties on the Nose scrambling to gain a few feet whenever the rain stopped. On one pitch, I pulled a fixed head and ripped the next three pieces for a forty-footer. One of the best parts of the route was the top-out haul, which had none of the high-friction drama that caps off most routes.
