Wow - what a mountain. Went with a guide - just the two of us. Left at 4am - took our time and had the mountain to ourselves all day long. Sat at the summit in just a T-shirt - beautiful weather. The guide short roped me and we played around sometimes chosing a more difficult route to expand my comfort level. We came up a good section in the dark . On the way back down I was shocked to see the steepness of what we had climbed. (I am glad I did not see it on the way up). The technical climbing part was not as scary as the books say but it is no walk in the park. I thought exposure meant real steep drop offs and climbing where there is air underneath you. This climbing is a series of shelves rather than real wall climbing.

Awesome Climb! very steep though, and the "kneebanging" descent was not fun :( I dont know which way Gerry Roach climbed this mountain, but the last thousand feet is not all fatal drops as he exclaims in his guidebook. I think he just gets a little over dramatic in most of his "descriptions".

One tough climb, but lots of fun. We got into a tight spot toward the summit (bordering on class 5) with route finding, but did manage to finally find the route.

Simply amazing...yet, my heart was beating pretty quickly for the last hour...very steep, and every step means something...so be careful!
