Nice views  Sucess!

I led the 2nd and 3rd pitch. Great exposure and fun climbing, but either carry all your stuff up, or bring a light pack w/ some shoes for the downclimb. We did the latter and it worked out fine, but I probably would take everything with me next time.

Fun climb...  Sucess!

I lead the first & fourth pitch. We took 2.5 hours, but wasted a little time on the second pitch after about 60'. We saw bolts that continued horizontal and missed the bolts that went up. We chose up and found the second belay station. I thought the first pitch was the toughest, but this climb is fairly straightforward. I would suggest having a few runners for the first pitch...2/3 of the way up the route goes left on a 160'+ pitch.
Also, we did this climb in the morning...Brrrr, never saw (felt) the sun.
I would definitely do this climb again...
