Ascent Trip Report

Enterprise FSR has waterbars but a CRV with 6.7inches made it and non AT tires with only a few minor bumps. The old trail up the valley has been fixed up by someone and is a really good route to reach the col of the NE ridge. The ridge was alot of fun, knife edged at times. All the reports we read about the final crux had us abit concerned. Most had to deal with snow, all we did was traverse left out onto the East face and then scramble directly up on shale ledges and ramp bypassing the crux and regaining the ridge. There is exposure but the ledges and ramps always felt safe. We all agreed that doing it without snow was alot easier than everyone made this ridge out to be.
