Traversing across the ledges on the west face of Sill. The exposure was minor, and there were plentiful handholds. Once across the ledges, the climbing steepened but was quite easy with good hand and foot placements. The rock was solid all the way up through the 4th class section to the ridge. The forth class section itself was no more than 15' high and seemed to just have a single crux move where we high-stepped out right onto a thin horizontal crack before moving up (2016-08-06).
