We climbed a route as described in Becky (CAG:2 page 340). We climbed the gulley to the climber's left of the main peak directly to the summit. I would describe it as loose and spicy 4th class. We did not see the 20-ft crack, but found a 20-ft right facing open book just prior to the summit. No gear used, pro would be problematic, 50 meter rope required for the rap. We combined it with a climb of Goode the same day, which was reasonable camping at five mile camp. The traverse from Goode to Storm King over a notch below Goode at 7400ft avoids some (but not all) of the scree slogging.
"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."
