P1 5.9 on The Regular Route on Fairview Dome, 2002. I'd always wanted to do this route, one of the Top 50 Most Crowded Climbs, but the stories of long lines scared my away. My brother Paul and I left San Francisco at 2am on a Saturday in September and got to the trailhead at 6am, only to find another car there. We were pretty upset, but we stuffed some food down, grabbed our gear, and took off. As we left, another car pulled in behind us. A short way down the trail, we saw some people sleeping in the woods, the people that were "ahead of us." So we were first on the climb, and had a great experience. Another party had to wait a bit behind us, and complained a bit, but we soon left them behind on the upper pitches.
