We started the West Crack just as a small snow squall was moving through. We thought it would clear up, but it didn't. After finishing pitch two, it was a white out snow storm. The finger crack on pitch three was seething with water and freezing cold. At one point, a Yosemite Ranger yelled up to ask and asked us if needed help. We didn't, but we were ready to get the hell out of there. Amazing climb with not so amazing conditions.

Did the full route and then the first two pitches again to do blown away, which is awesome. I find the first pitch to be 5.8 at the start easing to 5.7 for the remainder and the second pitch 5.8 roof to be the crux. 5.7 fingers on P3 is also all there.

Wow... what a great route. Every pitch spectacular. 5.8 roof is the crux, a little awkward. If stuck in the inevitable line, climb the two warm-up sport routes first, very nice.

I've climbed this at least a couple of times over the years. Such great, diverse climbing. Glad they installed the rap to descend.

Climbed with Bart. A super fun route that I know I'll be repeating many many times. The descent is a bit tricky, but not too scary.
