Thoroughly enjoyed the ascent up the NE Couloir and then the ridge to the summit. Wasn't thrilled with the descent on the loose dirt, rocks and boulders but I did it! Disappointed that there was no register but oh well.
Hadn't planned on climbing this one, but it caught my eye during the hike in to Broken Finger. The register disappeared sometime between Bob's visit last year and mine this year.
Ed Connor and I bivvied near a stream on the desert floor and climbed this without a topo. We left at first light and I think it took about two hours to get to the base. I recall being drenched with sweat. The route was obvious, and fun. Good clean rock and just enough pro. We topped out around 1:30, then descended the gully between the 'Stack and Adam's Rib. At the base I found the fabulous first pitch, a huge right-facing dihedral with a really good hand crack. We missed it on the way up because we came in from the left. I free soloed it so I could say I'd climbed the whole thing.
This was a very enjoyable and not-so-difficult dayhike. The hardest part was postholing my way back to the TH in the afternoon. Trip Report
