Ascent Trip Report

We went down a goat path a bit north of the pass. Recommend instead actually capturing the pass at the low point to get the easiest way down. You have to go down first. Easy navigation, easy scramble. Note you can't see the summit until you gain the ridge at 8300 feet. What you are looking at from the climb is the ridgeline at 8300ft. Awesome, beautiful scramble!!!!
