Hiked in gear and bivied at the base of the route the night before with Greg Coit.  With the days getting ever shorter, we woke at 5am and started climbing at 6am, with a final top out of the route at 4:30pm.  We're happy with 10.5 hours, tho we could def do it faster knowing the route now.  It's pretty wandery and theres lots ways to get off route.  Def Heads Up!!!  Even tho i climbed like crap, all in all was a great day on the big rock.
