Ascent Trip ReportAll metrics for this downclimb is buried in with the White Mountain GPS track and TR. I will say I would not have attempted this if someone was not at the summit making sure I returned. There are several broken towers and teetering talus piles to overcome to get to this point and it appears to be out on a semi-exposed ledge of crumbling rock. I very carefully down-climbed and up-climbed these features and I am not ashamed to admit I scooted out on the ledge on my butt to get this. Rock was falling everywhere and you must take you time if you really want this point. Are they sure it is really there?
