My buddies and I climbed this on a two day excursion in July from Glacier Point. The trail is well marked and frequently traveled. No need for GPS. Although the weather was sunny and clear when we started, we were caught in a pretty good thunder shower the first evening during the hike in. Be prepared as you never know when those storms will hit you. The storm passed quickly and we make our way to Little Yosemite campground for the first night. Campgrounds are nice, with a river nearby to filter water.
THE CLIMB
Easily identified by using the map from supertopo guide book. The route is easy to follow. We used the alternate belay stations on the first two pitches. The only pro used were a few small nuts and two cams at a belay station. Otherwise we used the bolts on the route. Long runouts but the climb was easy. The last push to the top is exactly as the beta suggests....it goes on forever.....and ever. No pro needed. We took off our gear and hiked it up. Very low class 5.

The hike out was long. Stop and fill your water pouch every chance you get. We saw a few bears along the way but they weren't a problem. Just be aware.

Overall, a great climb, awsome views, and good memories.
Take only Pictures.....Leave only footprints
Enjoy!
