Climbed with Ely Behrhort a long day via from the Virginia Creek drainage. About 13 hours car to car. I thought the traverse of the west face via the "goat trail" was probably the sketchiest thing I've ever done in the park. The exposure is as bad as can be and the rock quality is just awful. It's a death trap in my opinion. The final 500 feet of class 3/4 to the summit is real f***ed up too.
2007 with Bill via West Face Route.
2004 with Brian and Ronnie via West Face Route.
1983 with Bill via West Face Route.
1979 with Bill via West Face Route.
Note: Once on the South Ridge climbed directly toward summit deviating to the east when cliffs were encountered. Easy class 3.
