Comments: As of 15 Jul 2017, the approach was muddy and wet but feasible(we had to go pant less to cross stream off the parking lot). Thanks to such conditions we were the only persons on the Pillar on a Sunny Saturday almost never heard of. Crossing the last snow couloir was sketchy and needs some snow travel experience it is pretty vertical as you can see in the following picture


Falling or sliding on this last traverse can have pretty bad consequences.... more >>

Comments: Approach from the main trail to this route sucks... especially in hot weather the bugs are so so so annoying, make sure you study your way in and allow enough time to find it.

Comments: This climb is a true 5 stars climb you must get on it.
Protection is great all the way. We have used the double #5.
With a 70M and double rack + triple hand size you should combine p1-p2 and p4-p5 there is no drag at all.
it was funny to pull on the bush on top of p5 :D not sure if that's part of the routes.
The approach/decent is not that clear as it involves some bush walking.

Comments: This route is fantastic !!
Felt that P1 is very hard for the grade, i would give it at least 5.11 comparing to similar climb like OZ at Drug Dome.

Rap Beta:
As ppls suggested we looked for the rap station 200ft down left walking toward the gully. We did the rap with one 70M (i guess 4 raps). Be careful the last rap does not touch the ground need to down climb couple of steps.

Comments: Decent from the top of the cliff is a pain in the AXX especially if you do a stupid mistake like me and you take your sandals instead of appropriate approach shoes for all the bushwalking.
If you are solid on 10s face moves, no need for any big gear IMHO the OW section is jogy and very secure.

Comments: No need for big cams IMHO one #4 is enough.
Best way to go down is to rap as mention in Supertopo.
With a 70m rope you can do one rappel from the anchor near to the big tree mention in supertopo.
