Ascent Trip Report

The hike to the base of the summit blocks was fairly trivial, but the summit blocks were quite a challenge. The initial crack was very tight- most couldn't bring their packs up, and probably class 3-4. Once out of the crack, the final wall was rated 5.3. While it is possible to climb up it without protection, down-climbing without a rappel would have been very scary if not fatal, at least to me. There was supposed to be another route through a cave, but the entrance looked like one needed to be very small or a contortionist to enter it.

The views from the summit were incredible in all directions. Even the view from the saddle below the difficult summit blocks was great.
