Ascent Trip Report

looking at this from Monte Cristo it looks really dicey. Turns out it is pretty dicey. 15 20 feet of really exposed easy climbing. Then you get to a good ledge and decide to climb up the rock or scramble up the loose gully. I decided to climb the easy rock to the top rather than risk slipping down loose scree. Finally made and saw that i have to scramble over to the peak that the people climbing the ridge via Little cottonwood get to. Made it to that peak signed the log and headed down towards lake blanch. Pretty much the only time i saw people all day was below lake Blanche
