Note - the topos and gear lists are from the early 1980's. No doubt most ( if not all ) pitons can be eliminated from the gear shown ( there weren't TCU's in 1983 ) and much ( if not all ) of the route can go free today. However, if you want to do these climbs in there original style clean climbing, I see nothing wrong with that either! It should be noted that if aided there may be a couple of aid moves per pitch ( not continuous - this isn't El Cap ). Also see The Climbers Guide to the High Sierra by Steve Roper for more information.
