5 out of 5 stars Record flood climb

3 days of record rain fall and this resulted in many dramatic rescues. We left the bags to do Salathe but instead did triple direct.

4 out of 5 stars :)

For me, the easiest route on the wall. Especially if you do Free Blast earlier

5 out of 5 stars Still a Classic

Did a night ascent of it.
Still a fun route.
Wish I could free some of those pitches on the Muir portion.
