Ascent Trip Report

Our 8th U.S. state high point trip. Route was 100% dry, no snow. Summit temperature +1°C, no wind. Class 3, unsustained. At the base of Chicken Out ridge, the path splits into three use trails, all unmarked, we took left, via north slope. Exposed. Low temperature rock made fingers very cold. On return we took middle trail, less exposed, but difficult to figure out. The crux was as posted, class 3, no exposure, after that it's class 1 all to the top. 5 hours up, 4 hours down. We were only party on the mountain. Great sunny day with blue skies.
