It's a classic for a reason! We climbed it when it was wet (I thought this guy was supposed to stay dry?), I ended up climbing it to save some draws. The wetness made it pretty nerve wracking, but it was still a lot of fun. Fell once a little below the roof because my hand just slipped off a wet sloper. Still a little tweaked about that one. Can't wait to try it dry.
EDIT: Got back to it finally (8/9/15), sent it easy. Great climb.

|It stays dry when there's a straight downpour- like in the late spring and summer. With misty, wind-driven rain, and with the added water of melting snow runoff, almost everything was wet- even routes like this one that are notoriously dry when everything else is wet. It is a sweet route though.|
