We started out on the butter knife and headed over to the mutt and Jeff, but I was leading and got off route and we ended up doing the south east chimney, missed the belay bolts and ended up having to build an anchor in the chimney. The friction is superb and the exposure is unnerving in places. The scariest part IMHO was the traverse at the summit to the rap station, super exposed straddling the ridge line with several hundred feet to one side and 150 to the other side; butt pucker fun for sure.
