started on tough, facey 10c for first pitch, following. Fell several times. Then fell again on lead at the crux pitch (after the hard moves) - slipped off! Damn new shoes! I will be back to send this. And will do the first pitch proper (5.8 flake) that looks beautiful. Super fun route, but the last pitch gets to be kind of garbagey (especially after the quality climbing on the third pitch). Be sparing with the gear on that last pitch - it's about 180'.

Climbed in June 1986 and many times since. A very fun route. The dihedral pitch off of Library Ledge is great. There used to be a pin at the crux, but it is now gone. Several choices to start climb, but right facing flake/dihedral is probably the best.
