You can be Perseus so long as I can be Andromeda.

This climb is all well and good but what about the belaying?  Future belayers take comfort in the fact that you are in the shade most of the time, and when you are not you are only a 1 minute walk back to the campground.  During the late morning the sun will be in your eyes (so refuse to belay until it moves).  there are a number of convenient rocks to tie yourself to (bring two slings for this purpose).  If your climber needs to jug up the rope it is a nightmare – call on the assistance of bystanders.  Ew, I hate that plonky feeling down the hill.
