Climbed the west ridge with Tom and Paul. 13 1/2 hours from car to car. We brought a rope, small rack, and a poor excuse for bivy gear. Luckily we didnt use any of it. We climbed all but the last couple hundred feet in our hiking boots. I thought the last "pitch" was harder than 5.4. Perhaps because I was unroped and looking at a couple thousand feet of exposure. We all agreed that the crux of the climb was descending the cascadian.
