We did it before the flakes peeled -- and I remember the big white one P2 being very scary. The climb was notorius for route finding errors and runouts. We missed the start and soloed P1 by accident. On the P3 traverse I went up too soon and took the stunning 5.8 dihedral. Only at the top did I realize my mistake, requiring downclimbing it, then moving left to the proper 5.6 dihedral. In retrospect, this was my favorite 300' lead of the route. Scott then went off route to the east on pitches 4 and 5 (both about 5.8). With a rising traversing west on sketchy pro, I finally got us back on route. The last pitch (before the exit chimney) is truly spectacular and quite exposed.
