5 out of 5 stars excellent through out

The first pitch was wet, and probably 5.8 R after that it was pure enjoyment. I remember being startled upon reaching the top of the pillar, and looking 200 ft down the back side. Caught in a raging storm at the top.

5 out of 5 stars _

One of my proudest "onsights", tagging the summit in a fantastic day car to car. Not all the pitches here are good but the two crux pitches are some of the most amazing I've ever climbed in the mountains. Went back a week later to do the Casual Route and bivied but I thought car to car was LESS total effort.

5 out of 5 stars Great Route

Great route up the diamond, first couple pitches are a little loose, but the quality get better and better as you ascend. The upper pitches really got the heart rate and breathing going. Got hammered by the weather for a while.
