I know these questions are general and target subjective responses, but I'm really just trying to compare my experience with others' who know better. Though I have a lot of gym climbing experience, I'm just now getting into general mountaineering. I remember thinking as I went up and down that couloir: "if this is what 'real mountaineering' is like, I don't think I like it."

Last time I descended that route, with ScottyS on a partial traverse of the Palisades, there was a deep moat at the bottom that we rapped into, then walked in the bottom of the moat until we found a place to scramble out. ScottyS and I found this couloir to be unpleasant, and most likely class 4.
