How was it, Deb? I am going to be there in a few weeks.

Oh it was so awesome!! No drama at all, even with 3 on a rope. No wetness on route at all. We did the full traverse, so didn't use any rap anchors although I saw plenty near the North Summit. I was lucky enough to draw the final pitch to the summit; we simul-climbed 90% of the traverse. Incredible!
