My non-climbing friend and I climbed the South Ridge (Class 3) from Sailor Lake last summer. A fair amount of talus on the approach to Wallace-Haeckel col, then a fun scramble to the summit. A couple of Class 3 moves, depending on which way you go, but mostly class 2. We took a rope and light rack, but never needed it. A long day, though. Jul 22, 2016
