Great Brian! This is much needed and much appreciated. I always wondered where the Lowe/Weis went.

Isn't the "North Buttress" route AKA North Ridge? This is the line between Mythical Kings and The Vigil. SuperTopo has it rated at IV 5.10 A0... is that the same line? (No FA info on STopo to verify)
