I thought this climbed to be more difficult than Casaval Ridge eventhough it is graded 1 lower. Very exposed sections abouve 10,000 feet with minimum places to set up camp, If you are caught on the ridge in bad weather, you will be in trouble. I advise that consulting with a ranger about proper technical gear.. for I wish I bought some rock protection while crossing some very skimpy sections. I didnt find this route enjoyable , but definately challenging. not very enjoyable in my opinion, Casaval was alot more fun.
