Once you reach approximately 11,500' you will encounter the infamous "Chicken-out Ridge". It's a 3rd class terrain feature with moderate exposure. The casual hiker often turns around at this point, but if you are comfortable on rock then you will have no problem. There are many options through this section, but for my less experienced party I traversed climber's right.
Down climbing Chicken Out Ridge
Once you pass the 'crux' simply follow the well worn climber's trail to the top to earn your tick. Descent via the same route.
