Ascent Trip Report

NE Ridge. Fun! Two or three spicy parts. One spicy part caused by needing to downclimb because I went off-route... If I'd trusted the Summitpost page I would have known it didn't make sense to go to the right of the ridge. Did the whole hike in Tevas, except for about 100 vertical feet in the class 4 area, where I used rock shoes, which I was glad I had!

The approach after leaving the trail but before the saddle was fun too. Lots of walking up easy slabs.

Lost the use-trail briefly on the descent so ignore the 500 ft of the track near 9600ft.
