Penelope May and I did this very seldom climbed route for her 60th Birthday on August 10, 2011. The summit register had one previous ascent of the East Face in the last 12 years. The summit view is just incredible, from Yosemite to Tuolumne Meadows to the Clark and Ritter Ranges, everywhere you look you see domes and peaks. We found this summit to be one of the most beautiful in the Sierra.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
