Agree with Dan this felt like low angle 5.6 wandering and broken into three short pitches with Amy, Maria, Leigh, John and Ron. We were off route a bit. Beautiful dome, beautiful summit.

My girlfriend and I climbed the SE saddle approaching from Glacier Point to avoid swimming in the monstrous Illouette. The bypass from the footbridge at Illouette Falls to the trail junction with the Mono Meadow trail took a while but was hopefully faster than looping around on the Panorama Trail. The slabs were almost entirely dry on the gulley approach and were great for conquering my fear of slab "soloing". Both the climb and the rappel were super smooth and it was a great - if not ridiculously long - day. We were surprised to be the first to sign the register in 2012 as conditions and weather are all perfect for Starr King!

I would say that this is very low 5th if climbed free solo following the line of least resistance. With a rope and a few anchors on each pitch I feel it was a zigzagging, low angle, rope drag 5.6.

SE Saddle from Mono Meadow with Seth. First summit register entry of 2007! On rappel we found one of the fixed pitons to be very loose, so we traversed to climbers right to an alternate rappel station. Afterwards we camped on the middle summit enjoying perfect summer-like weather.
