climbed the east face with sarah and dominic. i loved the climb and the increasing angle as we got higher up this puppy. led the first pitch(5.4 R) with was concerned with the runout nature so i conceded the lead to dominic the remainder of the climb, and was pleased with the decision.
and yes, you have to do this climb; the rappel is orgasmic!
this was a fun climb. we skipped the first slab pitches to save time but the finger crack was nice and ate up everything i put even close to it (felt like a soft 5.4). The rappel is intense! make sure to check the webbing and your rappel device; twice.
