We did this and The Ahwahnee Buttress years ago and they were really good routes. I imagine they've cleaned up considerably . . .

I did this route about three years ago. It was NOT clean then. The climbing itself was good, but the upper pitches became considerably adventurous. I'm glad it's looking better. I thought the 2nd and 3rd pitches were pretty cool and rather demanding!
