Ascent Trip ReportClimbed from south to north as part of the East Fork Foss to West Fork Foss loop. Ascending from the south there were two rock steps that took some poking around to find a route that required a couple class 3 moves and some thrashing. I don't recommend this route and won't provide details. I didn't find the summit register. The descent to the north was more straight-forward and would be my recommended route to climb this peak. I'll describe the route as an ascent. There is a decent tread that leaves the main trail at about 5,000 ft north of Atrium Peak. The tread follows the top of the cliff above Angeline Lake, crosses the outlet at about 4,600 ft and follows up the NW ridge leading to the summit of St Agnes Ridge. I veered to the north to avoid the steep section of the ridge between 5,000 and 5,200 ft. The steep section of the ridge may go but I opted for the slightly less steep route slightly north of the ridge. There wasn't a tread to follow through this section and there was a boulder field to cross. The rest of the way to the summit is an easy stroll.
