Comments: Was up at the perch yesterday (6/25) crossing Redfish creek is extremely hairy. The creek is Class 4/5 rapids and lapping over the log bridge over the creek. Up higher, there is some tricky snow bits getting to the saddleback lakes, not hard but if you fall on the snow you are going to slide 60 feet into the creek. Bring at least a hiking pole, or better yet an ice ax and some boots to kick steps.
The rock however is in perfect shape and the descent gully is clear as well.
Comments: Highly recommend doing the 5.8 crack/corner on the 3rd? pitch. Eats two #1 camalots and puts you a great ledge on the overhanging right face a little earlier. A nice face pitch links into the pipe pitch from here. Staying right higher up 5.8+ also yields some nicer rock. Took 3 tries to finally get a good day to do this one and will always remember it. A truly great route with a feeling hard to get east of the rockies.
