Great climb. The crux on the first pitch is a weird zig zag for about 20 feet right off the ground. The 2nd pitch has a pretty burly crux close to the top. The crux of the 3rd pitch was the hardest for me. I got out of sequence and my right foot was trying to find something. All I could come up with was a shitty smear that was covered with lichen. My foot kept coming off and there was just empty space underneath the bulge. Had to yard on a nut. The last pitch (we did it in 4 instead of 3) had this really exposed traverse over a big bulgy overhang. Shoved my arms in up to my elbow and did an arm smear to get across.
We got to the summit about 10 minutes before the skies opened up and let loose with a drenching downpour. The walk off is more of a down climb and was really slick. By the time I got back to my pack, I was soaked. My shoes had so much water in them, it filled up the toe space.
Hiked down to the car and felt and looked like a drowned rat. Lots of BooYahs in the parking lot because we got down without injury.
