Ascent Trip ReportGenerally followed Bob Burd's route and the 52 Peak Club use trail.
Many ducks and cairns lined the route to the saddle between the Nose and the Forehead, so I had no trouble following the trail. There was a good amount of snow in the upper half of the wash.
I made a (failed) attempt at the Forehead from the saddle. I'd call it class 4+, but the exposure and difficulty were too much for me. I might return with better beta.
The chute from the saddle is SUPER FUN class 3. Highly recommend it. This is honestly my favorite hike in the Charleston area.
Bob Burd said in his trip report that he wouldn't recommend using his descent as an ascent. I agree. Except I wouldn't recommend it as a descent route, either. Extremely loose and steep. I fell multiple times where the scree abruptly turned to talus or snow.
