I really liked this route. Love the dihedral on the first pitch! and the face climbing that follows is really fun and offers incredible exposure. We were in a hurry, so I linked pitch 1 and 2 using a 60 meter rope w/out problem. To link pitches one and two only requires a single rack and 12 or 14 alpine draws. I only had 7 alpine draws and 7 quickdraws and I started to get a bit of drag the last 40 ft.
The slings on the bolts at the top of pitch two are pretty faded and should be replaced soon.
Get on this route!

|First 2 pitches are 4 star climbing for sure. 3rd pitch is OK. I'd recommend topping out via the 3rd pitch of the Lowe route. This keeps you on amazing 4 star climbing the whole way.|
