DescriptionWhile this ridge climb is relatively short and without much in the way of technical difficulty, it follows solid rock and is in a breathtaking position with views of Buckner, Boston, Sahale, and Johannesberg during the climb, then a 360-degree summit panorama adding in Forbidden, Eldorado, and a sea of other peaks further away.
P1: From the notch, skirt the ridge to climber's right on large blocks, then follow a dihedral up a couple moves to the ridge and a belay.
P2: Follow solid rock on the ridge proper with good gear.
P3: Scramble at or slightly right of the ridge to the summit.
To descend, scramble back to the top of pitch 2, rap that pitch, then scramble over to a large block above the notch and rap again.
