|This is a fun route with great slab climbing but also chimneying. It may seem runout if you are not used to it.|

Wonderful route. If it is at all wet on the glacier point apron, this route may well be wet. I was up near the fourth pitch which is kind of runout on a fixed pin that looked pretty old. I look up the wall above me and the slightest trickle of water was approaching, just like when you wash your car and the first bits of water start running down the gutter.
I did the friction moves wet, and after that the water just increased. The route was mostly wet. On the pitch before the final chimney, I believe it says you go straight up from the belay and past a few bolts, and the supertopo says it is 5.7 . These moves going straight up I feel are more like 5.10, if you clip one of those bolts, then traverse right a ways and then go up, you can keep it 5.7 .
Bring two ropes to rappel the route.

|There is no "easy" way on the top pitch. You can do a weird double-right-angles-rope-drag-from-hell 5.9 (the right variation) or the absolutely-unprotected-but-easier-5.9 direct. After going up with a Yosemite virgin and a Yosemite old-timer, we both agreed that the direct (left) option was preferable.|

|Crack climbing pitches are fun and easy, and the 5.8 psychological crux was not bad at all so maybe I was off route on (the supertopo) pitch 5, but I traversed straight right from the p4 anchor, did not find a piton and barely made it to the two bolts (no rings) just below the "5.9 crux" and ".75 cam." The hard moves on this pitch felt far harder than the "5.9 crux" move and were very runout. If I hadn't been linking pitches I would've been looking at a 30 ft factor 2 pendulum fall, definitely not ideal. Last pitch chimney was fun and didn't require much actual chimneying. Didn't think the route was nearly as good as the supertopo guide makes it out to be.|
