Simul'd mostly on a light half rope. Looking down on the Valley from summit was surreal.

With K.

Passed one roped party and had the rest of the "playground" and summit to ourselves.

FUN as always!!!!!

Took the direct exit instead of the class 4 traverse this time. Amazingly easy.

Many variations to the route makes it adventurous. Overall, a pretty easy and quick climb!

Great first simul-climb. Easy and fun. First third seemed like all 3rd and 4th class.

Started simuling about halfway up. Though we looked, we never found either the left 4th class exit nor the 5.7 hand-crack. We just kept climbing after going right around the roof, basically going straight up, till we saw an obvious right-trending finish just below the actual summit. Trying to follow the 14 pitch supertopo beta on this would be truly absurd. Just climb it!

Did in four big simul pitches. Lots of fun easy climbing with many variations to bypass other parties.

Soloed the route except of the last 1 1/2 pitches which we simulclimbed. Descent was longer than expected with some snow and slippery slabs.

Led/simul-climbed the NW Buttress with Chris Terry while Dave Millar and Joel Bernier soloed it beside us. The climbing was easier than expected. Clean, fun rock, easy pro, and easy routefinding. The 5.7 direct finish was also very fun and secure climbing.

Chris and I descended the SW Ridge, but took a shortcut descent off of the ridge somewhere between the standard route and the West Face route.

Simul-climbed the whole route except for the last pitch, which was a nice crack that lead to the NE side of the summit. There were 3 of us and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Was anticipating a long route, but with simul-climbing and easy scrambling, it went by pretty fast. Pitched out a few at the top as we were on one of the 5.7-5.8 variations that led directly to the summit block.
