Unfortunately you are not aware of how our group climbs! We take special care in Leaving no Trace as we climb in addition to doing large amounts of work on the trails to make access easier and less impact to the environment. Just to let you know that as we camped we stayed on either established tent spots or rocky ground, in addition to the garbage that was not ours that we packed out.
I hope that rock wasn't very loose! At least everyone is wearing a helmet :-)
The rock is very solid. Easily climbed after the traverse when we went in Sept 2013. The traverse is still the main problem of the climb.
