Climbed in July 2006 with skyline adventures. Great mountain with fantastic views of the area. Had to turn back about 50% of the way up due to a member of my team getting sick and dry heaving. The 4 days we were there I only saw 2 other people. Fantastic area.
This was my first climb that I would call technical. It was probably at about the limit of my ability (being 61 years old and not very well coordinated) so it might just be my last technical climb as well. It was a great challenge and a fantastic (though exhausting) climb. Skyline Adventure School did a great job of setting it up and providing guides, equipment, etc.
