Ascent Trip Report

Very steep the first 1.4 miles. Chicken Out Ridge is not as hard as advertised. Although there is exposure, rock is very solid and holds are very easy to find. An ice ax was needed when crossing the snow bridge. Final summit approach is littered with loose, sharp rock. Class 3 scrambling is required
