Ascent Trip ReportFrom Lamont TH, ascended Lamont and East Lamont before continuing down the ridge to the PCT. On the way up, the Class 3 climbing and slab were pretty easy. However, the slab really spooked me on the descent. I decided to go back up a little bit and down climb the prominent chute to the west of the slab. The chute was very steep, upper class 3, but not as exposed as the slab. From the saddle to the summit and back to the saddle took a little over 3 hours. Much tougher than expected.
