Ascent Trip Report

5.8, 5.9 variation to Ellingwood Ledges. Free soloed all the lower scrambling sections (some exposed 4th Class); roped up for the last two 5th Class pitches. Be advised: plan for a long long day if climbing all scrambling sections roped - running belays would help make it faster.
