Climbed this route today after picking up high sierra 2nd from Cmac in mammoth. Great route!! The 10a fingers felt .9, the .9 hand crack felt .8... But that 2nd pitch crux was wild!

Eerily like the hulk. 2each from very thin to gold cams, brought a 3 but you can do without if comfy on 5.7 fist moves. Crux move protects well with a #5/6 black diamond stopper right at the move. Belayed the top of 3 25 feet early on a good sloping stance (1.5"-3.5" options) and like the position - last pitch is pretty easy so better to not have too much drag zig-zagging on 3. Fun!
