Very enjoyable route. Since I was belaying two second climbers, we did the following variation:
P1: Belay below the fist crack of Lasso the Longhorn at approximately 30 m [100 ft] near a small tree with a good crack for a three piece trad anchor. This enabled us to maintain visual contact during the first pitch.
P2: I got off route and basically got on Lasso the Longhorn starting at the fist crack. Very enjoyable, the runout was interesting. After slinging the two horns, set-up a belay near the top at a left facing outcrop (approximately 60m [200 ft]).
We then gained the top via 4th class climbing. Make sure to check out Parkview Dome via the slot below the true summit.
Descent: Near the down-climb ledge on the north side of the dome, there was a tree with a sling and locking biner (thanks to those that left this gear). Since we had two ropes, the double (60 m) ropes made for an easy rappel to the base. In the future, this is what I would do since the down-climb/4th class ledge is exposed.

|We downclimbed this route when bailing off Lasso because of rain. It was enjoyable even in reverse.|
