Ascent Trip Report

Did this ascent with a CMC group. Approached from the Wheeler Trail on the north ridge at the saddle between Peak 8 and Peak 9. Had to scramble through a small Class 2-3 notch near the top just before the true summit. Saw some people at the top who approached from the south and discovered that they had an easy Class 1 approach!
