We arrived at the end not expecting it to be class 5 at the ending. We looked around for another way, but there was non from what we could see.

This is class 5. Bring a 60 meter rope for the repel. A small rack would be highly advised and extra webbing. We totally underestimated this climb based on the information given. Luckily we had just enough pro for a good belay station and the one low 5th class pitch to the lip of the summit ridge. http://www.willhiteweb.com/san_rafael_swell/temple_mountain/climbing_017.htm

Climbed via route on SE side described by Wasatchvoyage. Near the crux we more or less followed the red line (Route A) in his photo. Loose and exposed, yes. Neither of us could call it 4th class by any stretch of the imagination, but that's just our opinion. Climbed the east summit and then traversed to the west summit. Looking at both summits from each other all signs pointed to the eastern one being higher but we can't say for sure.

To descend from the western summit we traversed east for a bit just below the ridge on the south side and found a full 60 meter rope - abondoned apparently by either a newbie or someone who had to bail real quick. It was draped around a huge boulder in such a way that it was more than obvious it could never be pulled from below! We replaced it with some webbing and then used it to rap down and packed it out... convenient since our rope was only 30 meters and wouldn't have gotten us down from this point. It was actually a surprisingly clean rappel considering what a choss pile this peak is (and I mean that in the nicest way :). I loved it!
