Amazing route. I can't imagine 5.10 climbing getting any more spectacular than this. It was quite a reach for me at the time I did it--even more so considering I led both crux pitches. The climb was preceded by a miserable, sleepless fear-filled bivy the night before near Chasm Lake. On the climb, I hung on gear before the thin step across crux, and used several points of aid on the fist and offwidth pitch leading to the Yellow Wall bivy ledge. Yet since the route was such a big step up for me, it still felt like a considerable personal acheivement. I was more wasted after this day than any day of climbing I've ever had before or since--got really sick the week afterward and was completely bedridden for several days. I'd love to come back and tackle the 5.11 cruxes on the original Yellow Wall sometime.
