Ascent Trip Report

Scrambled the standard 4th class E ridge route. Completed the route by continuing up the sloping ledge past the 5th class crack and traversing left, easy but very exposed 4th class. Used a 37m rope to rappel from summit to notch. Standard doubled rope rappel did not quite reach the notch but passed the most exposed downclimbing. Estimate notch is 25 meters down from summit. Did another rappel from the high point just east of the notch, downclimbed the rest of the summit block.
