Comments: Definitely take the left variation up to the dihedral crack- fun climbing through there, no more difficult than the p1 climbing. Take p2 all the way to the bolt ladder. Whole route protects easy with great views. Shade in the morning.

Comments: I was warned that it is pumpy and physically demanding, but it really isn't. Good stances and slabby. I only brought one #3 and one #4, definitely not enough. Would have much rather had two #3s...

Comments: Don't skip the tyrolean, tons of fun. Definitely top out and try to get to the rap before dark. My headlamp broke in my pack so descending at night was terrible. We only brought 1 #3 but were wishing we had another for the 5.9 section on the crux pitch. Route finding is straightforward, look for cairns for the descent.

Comments: Stay away from the rock on the right. It's not needed for the sequence. One or two more hard pulls on that piece of rock and it will tear a huge chunk off the wall.

Comments: This route is well protected and super exposed. Definitely will get your heart racing even if you are a confident 5.10 leader. A must do at Smith. Started early and made made it to top of P3 by the time anyone else had showed up at the base. Might be able to link P4 and P5 with a 70M. We didn't have enough QD's to try it but it looks like it might go.

Comments: Fun roof. Don't need big cams on the 5.6 section. If you want pro you can stick cams in deep. First 5.9 move isn't too bad. Can rap to ground from top bolts with 2 ropes easily. P3 finger crack is fun and secure. 5.9 move has good feet and is well protected.
