Ascent Trip Report

Camped at the lake at the base of the descent route, climbed the NW ridge. Great route! Whenever it gets hard, choose your path carefully and side-hill (usually on climber's right), doing this will keep it 4th class. If you militantly stay right on the knife-edge ridge, it's definitely 5th class. I didn't not find the rock to be as good of quality as others, it's pretty bad and there aren't many good spots for pro if you wanted to use a rope.
