Ascent Trip ReportThis is a fun but challenging hike. Despite the Sierra Club's "guide", there was plenty of class 3 before the final summit block. Even where not required, where possible, it is preferable over the abundant steep loose terrain.
The rock scrambling in parts was time-consuming as there were sections with boulders you couldn't see over and hence had to climb (and often descend) just to route-find.
