Description:

The classic knife edge of the peak. Although semi-casual in good conditions, this route is long, exposed, and has un-predictable weather. You must retrace your steps back down, adding to the complexity. Get an early start, or bivy at the Uto-Sir Donald col. A must do, one of Roper and Steck's 50 classics.

A life changing experience. We had a terrifing decent through a thunderstorm.
