Climb up 5th class to anchor bolts and belay from there, fyi.

Fantastic route up the enormous hanging prow feature at the right end of Shagg. Scramble up easy ledges to a belay ledge and chain anchors. Steep climbing leads to a technical crux then more thin climbing to a heart-breaking finishing crux. FA: Nate Kimble

15 pitches over 20'? Better save this for late June when the days are longest. Does anyone with experience on this route know if there is a midpoint bivy ledge?

Chris, I don't have much multi pitch experience on long routes, but I do not recommend a bivy half way up this route. That sounds dangerous. And maybe do this in the fall when it isn't so hot. Be safe.
