Ascent Trip ReportTook ATV up to 7000' on Eldorado canyon road where the snow was too deep to drive any further. Hiked up the road then straight up the west rib. The steepest part of the rib was class 3 but the snow covering holes between rocks made it difficult. The top thousand feet had sections that were wind blown and very icy. Crampons would have been a huge help.
