Open registration starts on August 3rd.  I am only preregistering climbers who also serve as rope leads on the Ingalls basic climb the day before this climb.

This climb is grade II 5.7 that involves a lot of traversing on loose rock.  Critical to protect the second from a long fall.  Pro can be thin and difficult to place but you must do it.  5.7 is only for the "crux" move and IMO most of the climbing seems below this.  Rap off the  south face route and hope there isn't a large group climbing up it otherwise we'll have to wait.
