Description:

Approach the toe of the ridge, then wander up it. It's 4th or easy 5th if you find the easiest route, but you can make it a great 5.6 if you stay on the ridge top (that's what i did). The true summit does require a 5.6 mantel/boulder problem and is unprotectable, but the exposure is minimal at that point. Last time i did this route it was 4:30 car-car.

A few sections of 5.4-5.6 but there are harder interesting alternates if you want.

5 out of 5 stars easier than 5.6

and not too exposed, definitely would solo it here on out, but the skinny rope and few peices i brought didnt weigh much anyway.
