The link in the first paragraph to the trip report is broken. Also, there's some html code relating to an image farther on down the page that hasn't been rendered. Nice page, and awesome route on a good-looking mountain.

Is this route Grade IV or V? Looks like a huge day.

You know, this is more of a scramble and less of a "rock climb", so I hesitated to throw a rating at it. However, if pressed, I would call it a Grade V in summer and Grade VI in winter, simply based on the YDS grade definitions.

Thinking of a winter ascent is why I ask. I know it to be a "helluva climb" from various folks who have done the route. Thanks!

You bet. Miguel Forjan is the only one I know who has been up it in winter....his fairly large party made it to the East Horn IIRC. Might ask him about the specifics of how much they stuck to the crest...

Check out Porcella & Burns' CA 14er guide- Norman Clyde, in fact, did not do the FA of this one. Also, someone (Dick Long? Would need to check my book, which I don't have available right now) did the route in (an amazing, I'd say- sheesh!) 17 hours (also from Porcella & Burns' guide). Well done page (& TR), & props for your speedy (& ropeless) ascent!
