The approach is super fast as the trail is well used/marked. A little bit of erosion here and there. It took us 1.5 hours from the top of the gondola (no running but just steady)
A couple pieces of webbing are on the first 2 bolts of first pitch (easy to see). Agree with Peter that the route felt 5.7 as a whole apart from the 5.9 second pitch which was quite fun (and dry). A few too many bolts on pitch 6 maybe. We linked pitch 1/2, 3/4 and 5/6 no problem. Standard squamish rack to #3 is fine and 10 alpine draws. Took us 2 hours for the climb and the views up top are indeed amazing. Rappel straightforward with no stuck ropes.
Back at the gondola in a round trip of 6 hours.
Is this a 5 star climb? No. But combined with the hike, and the view - it makes for a great day outing and thus recommended.
