This is also a good snow climb in the winter or spring, right up the face, it is steep and pretty full on. Good training route as it is close to the road, easy access. The scree is uttely miserable and I would not recommend an ascent on anything but snow.
Again on 5/21/11, S Face Direct, took a GMS group up the steep snow fields on a nice cloudy day.
"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."
