Ascent Trip Report

The Dumbass Route
Is what I dubbed our very steep and rotten alternate take on the traditional ascent. Make sure to connect with the main ridge before heading too high on the very pleasant slickrock. The basalt between that point and the granite above turns a quick climb into a tedious slog that can easily double your trip time. Summit views were incredible regardless, and at least three climbers can fit on the summit block.
