One of THE most beautiful ridges in the sierra. Lots of pitches,like abt 30 if you belayed all of them. up to abt 5.7 or 5.8, depending on where exactly U climb. Lots of 4th classs, though, so it's best done simulclimbing, as it's mostly pretty easy climbing.

We approached from Dade Lake and did not start from the very base of the ridge. We belayed 16 full pitches to the summit block, and the crux was a 5.7 mantle below the Orange Tower. Great route.
