Ascent Trip ReportWhen N ridge became class 5 I worked onto NE face on scree covered ledges, near end of face found 25' diagonal chute (one class 4 move at top to exit) which got me onto upper level, scramble from there. Descended pleasant S ridge. The NE face will likely be blocked by steep snow early season, there was one snow finger (more like ice) I was barely able to squeeze by, and this was mid July.
