Climbed this route three times over the years. The first time with Miguel Carmona in 1986.Second time with Greg Vernon and Mike Baca (each of us leading one pitch)in mid 90s and the third time with Michael Gordon and Shauna Hermes in 1998. We always climbed all three pitches, IMO the third pitch up the finger crack and the step up at its end are totally worth doing and should not be missed. Great climb in a wonderful setting.
