Ascent Trip Report

As part of the Dusky. Took a sunny day to climb the northwest ridge. 3red to low 4th class scrambling. Very steep tussock in places that could be dangerous if wet. You have to weave around a bit to make a good route up as most of it is too steep with only occasional breaks. Scope it out from the minor peak you cross from the trail to access the pass. Rock wrens abundant on top! Very curious. Of note, the peak is further back than what you originally see. Great views in this remote wilderness!
