Aiguille Extra  Sucess!

With Peter S. I led the majority of the route and cut it down to 8 pitches with a 70m. Pleasant and fast route in a remote setting just minutes from the masses on Whitney Trail. No reason this route should not see more attention in comparison to Keeler Needle, etc. Outstanding huge dihedral feature. The 7th pitch is by far the crux: rock quality, moves, pro...everything about it gets your attention, but fun as hell just the same. The last pitch was stellar, rare to see a 14,000' route top out in such quality fashion. Get on it!
