Ascent Trip Report

I tried descending Point 5560 but there was about a 20-foot cliff at the bottom I wasn’t comfortable with. I searched for another way down but couldn’t find one I liked. I was mislead by Beckey’s guide which says “climb northeasterly through steep timber to the alpine ridge crest at 5650 ft. Go NE along the wooded crest for 2 mi.” The so-called “wooded crest” is quite cliffy in spots and not the easy walk that Beckey implies.
