| Safety Rating
It took me about 9.5 hours, car to car. The approach is very short if you're a fast hiker - took less than 2 hours, and I drove up from sea level the night before. The climb itself is a long Grade III however. Lots of fairly exposed 4th, and lots of notches to negotiate. Be selective about what you rope up for and try to keep moving. The ridge is a lot longer than it looks from the base. And it might not have continuous stretches of 5th class, but what's there is quite stout for 5.4.
