Did you guys rope up? Looks like some fun climbing!

We didn't rope up. The holds were very good and we just took our time and were very careful. You're right though, I fall there probably wouldn't be a good idea.

That's interesting. Maybe we avoided your first crux somehow. I definitely thought this was the hardest thing for us.

Good job on this one, Andy!

I didn't even pay attention to see what the pro looked like. The party we were following did have a rope in case one of their members got scared (she didn't), but I think they would have just hip belayed her from the top. The hard part is so short (20'-30') that setting up anchors and placing protection would just take a lot of time and effort. It's better just to grit your teeth and go for it IMHO.
If that looks scary and you're willing to carry a rope and harness then you might as well go N-to-S so you don't have to worry about pro (just bring some webbing and a couple of rap rings).

I heard that it is easier to traverse North to South...
Great photo and gives a good idea about what to expect.

Looks like a walk in the park, you pansy!
