DescriptionThis fun route is a good adventure climb in it's own right or a great warm-up for other climbs in the area. It hasn't seen a ton of traffic as of 2015 so there is a bit of flakey rock.
There are a lot of possible variations here, this one works well.
Start left of the toe of the ridge and left of an orangeish right facing corner, around 11,670 feet. Climb a few pitches, choosing your own adventure and staying just left of the crest of the ridge.
This leads to a shallow gully with 3rd and 4th class ledges and some loose rock. Up this to gain the ridge crest.
Once on the crest there is some 5th class climbing but it's mostly 4th class to the summit block, which is 5.2.
