Ascent Trip Report

I climbed this on my way down from Whitney. I used this excellent SummitPost description of the route. I followed the red route to the blue route, which was all very straightforward third class. The crux was the hug-the-boulder lateral move where the blue route goes left. There is a tiny foot ledge under the boulder that I used to cross it. The entire side trip took me 35 minutes from the Whitney trail.
