Author of the SP page is unfortunately dead.
I saw it on my way to Middle Pal and kind of fell in love. Would love to hear any feedback from those who did this route. Which guide books/instructions were helpful?

Just past this juncture, and I mean just past, is a gap with at least one rappel sling which marks the descent down the fourth class North Face. This piece of rock real estate is the most miserable, loose, ugly, never ending, boring, dry (sometimes), insufferable, doo-doo-esque section of half baked granite in the Sierra. Or in California. Or in the world. It is even worse than the Mountaineers Couloir on Mt Whitney, if that is possible. I consider the fact that I have climbed UP this route twice to be a point of personal embarrassment in my so called mountaineering career, such as it is. But I digress.

Now THAT'S a great climb! And the sweetest descent you may ever take.
On my 'to do' list yet.... haven't given it a thought in a long while now. Hmmmmm.........
