Ascent Trip Report

I climbed the south ridge, which is easier if you climb just right (east) of the ridge line below rock towers. I climbed the summit pinnacle from the north. I stood on a rock immediately east of the highest point and tagged the summit. If you want to sit or stand on the summit it will require a class 5 move, preferably belayed due to the exposure.
