Ascent Trip Report

Climbed via N ridge after visiting McGowan Lake. The ridge is class 2 from 6400 to 6540. On descent, I went off the ridge a little bit (on the E side) to keep everything class 1, but encountering some bushwhacking.

As this is only a side, I did not study hard enough. After check topo map at home, I found I should have descended via S ridge to reach 29N64Y to make a loop hike. S ridge is much more moderate than N ridge.
