Ascent Trip Report

Route to summit much easier traversing scree on north side of ridge to notch just west of summit. South side of ridge is steeper, has more route-finding challenges (minor though they be).

Sight level confirmed that the western 6960'+ contour is a couple of feet higher than the eastern.
