This is one of the best routes I've put up in the park, period.
Strangely, owing the approach I guess, it has not seen too much traffic.
I've read ridiculous stories of people taking 4 hours to get to the base. On the FA we had it down to under two hours. Drive to the second (or third?) switchback towards the tunnel, drop down to Pine Creek and up a gulley to west of climb. I don't recall it being a huge deal.
You don't want to miss 'The Cavity' chimney pitch, 2nd from top. It is one of the most thrilling in the park, and well protected to boot.

*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
guidebook users to post tips and updates to this website if they have relevant
information to share after a climb.
