First crux, near tower
12-August-2007: This is the first crux, near the first tower. I think Supertopo rates this 5.5 or something like that. I went up one of the cracks in hiking boots (probably should have put on my climbing shoes :)

For an alternative approach, see this shot ...

It's a really fun route -- if you feel solid soloing fourth / easy fifth in the Sierra there is no need to bring gear IMO. Just sticky rubber approach shoes and a pair of climbing shoes as backup. This is a perfect time of year to do it too.

I can be skittish with exposure, but from the looks of it, I think Gordon Ye and I will probably solo high, and then simul-climb most of the rest of the route. I'm looking forward to getting on it this weekend.
