Ascent Trip Report

Dayhike out of Tuolumne Meadows. About 10 foot band of snow at top of "central face" route. I could've scrambled around the snow, but since I had brought my axe just in case, I climbed the snow. There's a tad bit of exposure and 3rd class near the ridge and at the summit block. Descended left-side gully which is more straightforward but also very loose. Found myself bushwacking through some stunted pines on the ridge, which was unpleasant.
