Ascent Trip Report

From the connecting saddle there are several use paths up to the first pinnacle and it is class 2 or 2+ but as you head along the ridge the ridge becomes all class 3 rock. If you pick your route carefully and down climb when necessary to go around obstacles with exposure you can make this short journey as a class 3 but if you stay right on top of the ridge at all times there is some 3+ and 4ish in places with exposure and places where you can only down climb facing in. I stopped and rerouted or down climbed to avoid exposed movements whenever possible and tried to keep my route class 3.
