Ascent Trip Report

The west face was a fairly loose and not particularly enjoyable slog. But the ridge itself was good fun. If you stick to the very crest of the ridge, it is mostly class 3. It only gets to class 4+ when you're very close to the summit. Stick to the top of the ridge as much as possible for the best climbing.
