Ascent Trip Report

About 4,000 ft of ascent in less than 3 miles. Headed pretty much up the steep ridge, had some routefinding on the ridge with some exposed rock knobs and occasional 3rd/4th class moves. Think one can move around as needed to find the best way up. Thought to try coming down a different way, but then got socked in and decided to traverse over and follow the ascent route down. Top was quite specatular, up on some big fluffy clouds.
