Climbed east gully to northwest corner (crack). We took the left fork in the gully to climb directly up beneath the split summit block. The wet runnel forced us to stay right on loose and exposed 5.low, and I had to drop the rope to bring my partner up. For the summit crack we wished we had brought sticky rubber. Recommend doubles of C4 #1 - #4 and leave everything else behind. The summit rap anchor is in bad condition (see Monster5 TR); we intended to replace it but instead built a station for rappelling the right fork of the east gully (just north of the summit tower). A 60m reaches the fork with a little to spare. Pull was manageable from our anchor.
