Kangaroo Temple/North Face

Climb date 07/18/15. Left the cars at 7:30am and arrived back to them at 6:30pm. No snow from cars to summit. This trip involves seeing a lot of cairns. Although cairns are not recommended (because anybody can construct them anywhere and therefore maybe misleading)as a tool for navigational purposes, they were very helpful with regards to route finding on this trip. It was a bright and sunny beautiful day. One big rock the size of two "microwave ovens end to end" was very loose at the beginning of the first pitch (about 25 feet up form the belay tree). I pointed this out and told every team member to double check their hand and foot holds before putting any serious weight on them. The rest of the climb was fairly solid. Good group of people and everybody had a great time.
