Comments: Ryan, thanks for the comment - I was unaware LS was part of the original traverse. Looks like continuing on the ridge to Len Shoemaker would add approx. 0.75 mi. distance and 600' elevation gain along the ridge to that summit (and more roundtrip).

Comments: This route is a quality moderate tour without the crowds. Recommend combining P1 and 2 to make for a more direct line (bolted rap anchor at top of 1 is 15' up and left, which makes starting P2 reversing that climbing down/right). Save a #1 and #2 for the belay at top of 2. Also, be comfortable running it out on the first pitch - most of the gear in the first 50'(small cams placed downwards behind flakes) is junk.

Comments: Good adventure route. The last pitch is wild squeezing through the horizontal hole. Most pitches have some fairly run out chimneying, but those sections are moderate.

For rack we had doubles through #3 and one #4 and #5. Next time I'd take doubles through #2 and a single #3 and #4.
