Showed up to the East Face Standard Route, but decided to do this one instead of waiting for a party of 4 ahead of us. We went left, instead of right, of the "U", and it ended up being no harder than 5.4, and reasonably protected. Joined with the standard route for the last 40 feet or so. Good times!
