4th or easy 5th class to summit. Rap the route.
On the far right side of Table Dome is a huge left-facing corner about 2/3 of the way up the rock that is the end of First Come , First Served. Beggars last 2 pitches finish up about 30 to the left. Start right out of the streambed on a section of smoothe gray rock about 100 before the right side of the dome.
Rap the route with double-ropes.
Minimal "backcountry rack"
Very nice slippery slab on pitch 1
Last bit to the top!

I have done this route a couple of times. I find it to be great rock with great moderate climbing. Not for the meek of heart. I highly recommend this to anyone. Great job guys on putting it up for us.
