Ascent Trip Report

YY: After reaching the Hole in the Rock, I descended down the west side of the ridge to work my way around the rock walls and that worked well. It looked like I would have to go a lot further down if I tried to do this on the east side of the ridge. Once around the initial rock walls, its pretty much a ridge walk, but with minor bushwhacking and all in all pretty straight forward.

I sat around on the summit for a while waiting for the sun to move a little further west as the best scenery is on the east side. After taking some pictures I made my way back retracing my path up.
