Nice summit. I had an excellent view of the class 4 descent on Sill that Dirk and I had downclimbed in the dark earlier in the month. The climb from the U-notch was shorter than the Chimney variation to North Palisade, but it was definitely more difficult!
While descending the west side of the U-notch in the dark wasn't too fun, it was definitely better than returning at another date to climb Polemonium. Thanks for talking me into sneaking one more summit in that day, Dirk. : -)
