Anton, we arrived at this notch via the north side. We were surprised to find a fairly well-cairned route over there. The rock was good, the climbing secure 4th & low 5th class. This part felt several grades easier than the slab, so it's probably considerably easier than the way you went on the south side. Sep 27, 2015
Did you guys approach this notch from the north side or the south side? When I scrambled the ridge a couple weeks ago, I traversed across the blocky ledge/face seen here on the south side and definitely thought that felt cruxier than the slab immediately after this. Everyone seems to talk about that slab being the crux, so I feel like I might've made the ridge approaching that slab tougher than it needed to be.... Sep 27, 2015
