Ascent Trip Report

tried this with my wife and daughter but started climbing the wall too far to the left and didn't feel comfortable getting up the last 30', due to lack of spots to place pro. I tried getting up closer to the normal route but by then my wife and daughter (and I) were skiddish about the possibility of a fall, so we gave up and went over to climb the dome to the west as a consolation prize.
