France Barral and myself (Vicente Planelles) climbed the Durrance route with the Bayley's variation. Started at 3pm with no intention to summit. Then we ran into legendary Frank Sanders, who was climbing behind is with his buddies Bus and Erik. He made us feel so comfortable with the situation and his knowledge of the route was so good, we decided to summit in full moon. We summitted around 9 pm. Had a wonderful time. I highly recommend this route to anyone but I'll say that the 5.7 rating is only fair if you are used to crack, offwidth and chimeney. if not, plan ahead and give yourself extra time.
