Kangaroo Temple/North Face

Climb on 7/31, team of 6. Easy to follow climbers trail and cairns all the way to the notch, no route finding trouble. There is still a stream running through the basin, and a little pond just below Kangaroo Pass, no water available after the pass. Good weather, but some smoke clouds moving in from fires. Fun easy climb, rope drag is an issue - bring double slings. The route description says two double raps, but it looks like a single followed by a double would work fine. Car to car in 10:15 with lots of breaks, lounging on the summit, and a detour to see the plane wreckage on the return trip.
