Ascent Trip Report

when i bagged sonora i neglected to bag stanislaus... had i done it properly the first time around i would have traversed the ridge. so the ridge traverse is what i chose to do today. it was fun.

stanislaus ascent can be kept mostly class 2, but it does get to 40% grade for extended periods. the sand was frequently too loose for my liking, and i found it easier to spice things up with some climbing up the rocks. on descent i was able to glissade down some of the sandier parts, but overall there was a lot of picking your way across loose rocks.
