I essentially followed Ken Jones's climbing route of 2012-11-19. I called this route the "South Rib" as it is less pronounced than what I would call the South and Southeast Ridges. The South Rib footing was good and the slopes were mostly open with brush easy to avoid. I also visited both Harcuvar Benchmark and the NE summit.
