Beautiful climb, even on a windy, cloudy day. Highly recommend the Owen Chimney to those who are looking to spice up the ascent with another pitch of technical climbing. My first time to summit the Grand but definitely not the last!
Got off-route and finished the V-pitch at 4pm. At the time, the route to the summit wasn't obvious to us, so we rapped off to make sure we had enough daylight. Good thing, too, as we decended the wrong gully and had to retrace some of our scrambling back through the eye of the needle. A fun climb, but I'm upset I didn't finish the last couple hundred feet to the summit. 59ce067264
