Nice! Congrats on that one. Not surprised that it's harder than expected either. You figure there has to be a reason (apart from the lack of pro) why it's seen relatively few ascents. BITD, when hitchhiking in the Meadows, Bachar stopped and gave me a ride a couple of times and he always claimed it was only .10d.
I have a pretty poor record at predicting the future, like most human beings. But I do want to get on the North Arete of this thing -
And I want to finally complete this traverse -
North Arete on this one is also on my list -
I've been shut down twice on attempts to do this one -

I did manage to get off route on pitch 4 and ended up at the base of the Double Dihedral (perhaps not entirely unintentional ) but my partner led back around on the next pitch to the left of the arete to the correct corner, and I got to lead the final pitch, which was a blast.
I posted a trip report on supertopo if you're interested in more details & pics.
