Ascent Trip ReportAscended this from Ice Lake during a 40+ mile backpacking loop.
We went up Matterhorn first and then traversed to Sac. Nice ridge walk, don't recall anything technical on it, class 1.
There is a big opening/cave that goes straight down near this ridge high point. One could hypothetically fall down a ways if they weren't paying attention.
