Ascent Trip Report

Beautiful weather. Rented 4WD but still hiked 2.5 miles on road. 3rd class harder than expected in places with lots of exposure. Sustained 3rd class. Also lots of friction for feet rather than big edges (making it feel less secure). 6 people turned around in front of me.
I downclimbed past 2 rappel stations on way down. Maybe I was slightly off route.
Borderline as to a scramble or a rock climb.
