Description 

Fun climbing along the ridge, a couple fourth class moves and then two short pitches to a false summit, walk around the corner to the left (exposed) and one final chimmney pitch to the summit.

3 rappels down (all pitches are short enough for 60 m to be fine) and then we did one final rappel from ridge down to final talus slope because of a few steep moves.
