Ascent Trip Report

Up South East ridge, down South ridge. No snow for whole trip. The cat litter slope up South East Ridge may look very intimidating, but actually not that bad, totally doable, though undeniably very strenuous.

The scramble on the ridge is over rated. Mostly just walk, with a few spots need hand on movements. The so called crux block is no harder than a normal scramble on most rocky summits. Not sure why Mountaineers site says about bringing a rope.

Descending from South ridge is safer and easier to patiently stay on the ridge all the time until you see the last gully where you can see trees on the slope down below.

Definitely bring hiking poles, especially you plan on swim up the cat littler treadmill towards South East ridge
