Climbed via the Durrance route (6 pitches). Although it is only rated 5.7, it seemed harder because it requires a style I wasn't used to. Mostly scissor-lock type climbing. Anyway, we started about 4:30 in the morning to avoid rock fall from all the other clibers and summited sometime after 10:00 am. The rappel takes four pitches. I felt proud of myself until a father and mother showed up with their 9 year old son! Nevertheless, it is a classic climb and I highly recommend it.
