My partner and I climbed this route on April 30, 2011. A portion of the 5.9 chimney on the third pitch is wet but manageable. While my left arm and hand jams were soaked, it wasn't much drama. If you want dry conditions, I might suggest waiting until the fall.

In my opinion, this a great climb that deserves more attention. While I had only read the trip report that CMac references, I would recommend this climb to friends. It protects well, offers enjoyable climbing over 5 moderately graded pitches (2 short easy pitches, 2 moderate length pitches, and one short pitch of 10a), and avoids many of the crowds at the Cookie.
