Ascent Trip Report

After Echo Ridge and Echo #8. Snow on the north sides had me bail off the north ridge of Echo #1 because of ice in the final short chimney above the north arete. This is an awesome solid class 3 scramble. From talus below Echo #1 on the west side I climbed nice flakes and ledges up the steep west slope to the notch between Echo #2 and #3. then I turned up the knife edged North Ridge to the top.
