All the rage

The SW couloir does seem to be all the rage these days, with an increasing number of highpointers attempting this approach as a way of avoiding Class 5 terrain. But having just completed a guided ascent of Granite the old way via the FTD plateau approach on July 30 - also my 48th happy.gif - I have to throw some love to this route. The Class 5 couldn't be easier and the rock is absolutely bomber on the technical part of the route. Not only is the approach superb but the climbing is a complete joy. As someone recently told me, 5.4 is really 5.fun.
