Climbed with Amy as a day hike from South Lake. Did not have to walk even a minute with a headlamp. Started at sunrise, came back before sun set. North buttress was a nice route. Led the crux pitch which was awesome. Linked with 5.8 chimney.
Striking formation in a spectacular location, but thought the route was chossy. Linked up 2 sets of pitches for a total of 7. Found a single set of nuts & cams to #3 Camalot to be more than sufficient. with Jascha
Beautiful day of climbing with Stefan - got back a bit late, but thoroughly enjoyed it. Led the last bit as the sun set, and summitted as it got dark, making for a dramatic finish. Stefan finished under headlamp, for a fun top-out.
In a day, the walk out in the dark seemed impossibly longer than the walk in... Found a nice variation to the 2nd to last pitch. A shaprly zig zagging crack system that comes off a large ledge to the right of the regular route added a classy pitch of .9+.
