My favorite route on Cookie Sheet so far (have yet done The Cookie Sheet.)
Led all pitches in spring 2014. Fun climb; very nice view atop. I always enjoy Cookie Sheet for there is never a crowd! Thanks for the non-5-minute-apporach to keep many away...
It was the last climb I did until months later in 2014 (turned out two months to be exact - somehow it felt longer than that...,) for we got into a car accident on the way home after an awesome day of climbing (I wasn't the driver.) Both cars were totaled; both drivers walked away okay. I ended up with a broken leg - same leg that was broken 2.5 years ago!! Had to go through recovery and rebuilding same stuff all over again... No matter; I'm back and ready for more. : ]
Climbed this 3/10/12. Whole cliff and awesome exposed traverse ledge to ourselves on a Saturday. Almost 500 ft. of fun slab to a great view up valley of Reed's, Bridalveil Falls, and the Rostrum. Highly recommend you get your smear on! 2nd pitch cruxs were well protected with easy 50ft. runout 5.6 between. P3, at 5.8 felt harder than the crux 2nd pitch, due to sustained nature, and a few spots at the end of 20 ft runs with pumped calves on a 185' pitch.

*What is "Route Beta"?
It's climber slang for information or tips on a route as in, "what's
the beta on that route?" As a service to fellow climbers we ask SuperTopo
