Ascent via standard route described by Beckey Date Climbed: Jul 15, 1977
Fantastic trip with my two brothers. Only regret was using very cheap slide fim in my camera. Most of the pictures are all washed out. Don't remember much difficulty with the class 3-4 scramble, gorgeous views for 360 degrees on top. Great lounging possibilities on summit boulders.
I returned with a better route description along with Heather and Fletcher. The tunnel squeeze near the summit is amazing. The route was fun except for all the loose rock. We made 3 short rappels on the descent to avoid dirty class 4 downclimbing.
First attempt 8/29/2010: We made it to within 350 vertical feet of the summit before I decided to turn around. We were off route and could not find the access to the NW couloir.
