Ascent Trip Report

Not a nice route. We missed the right route through the cliff bands heading up to the col, didn't go far enough over left and went up through some sketchy cliff bands. Terrible scree on most of route. Also bypassed cliff banks wrong way on way down, around to the west on the red rocks, better than way up but still not great.
