Ascent Trip Report

A fun scramble along the ridge from Stanton Pass with lots of route options. The ridge is almost entirely class 2, except for one pinnacle very close to the top that acts as a false summit. If the false summit is surmounted directly from the ridge, the scrambling is more difficult than class 2; but this pinnacle can be bypassed altogether (to the east).
