We drove out with Parisa on Friday night and crashed in the ditch,
escaping the rangers. Got up at 4am, drove to the trailhead
and start hiking by 5:30... we made it to the base of the peak less
than two hours later where we found another party already on-route,
up the first pitch! They were actually on another variation and
it all worked out. A couple of hours later I could see at least 8
more people, showing how popular this route is!
Really beautiful climbing in an amazing setting. The summit
block was spectacular!
