Ascent Trip Report

On ascent, I tried to aim the S saddle, encountering some cactus-whacking. Without thoroughly evaluate the weakness, I climbed straight up from a chute at S side, then a series of easy class 3s, great protection and handholds, no exposure concern, basically hugging the ridge to keep my orientation.
On descent, I went a little W side of S ridge, planning a better route, all class 2 or under. Once I hit the road, I followed the ranch road to avoid bush / cactus, until I nearly missed my car.
