Route Climbed: West Ridge Date Climbed: Oct 11, 2012
Did this one with Josh Lewis. This was a great hike and scramble. We biked in which is highly recommended. Excellent fall colors accentuated the scenery and it was a beautiful October day. I thought the "loose rock" in the scramble section was overrated while on the way up. We didn't knock a single rock loose on the way up. While we were at the summit, I tossed a rock into the gully and it went down FAST! If you're climbing up and something breaks loose above you it will be on top of you before you are able to even look up after hearing it. I put on the helmet for the way down and we did have a couple rocks break loose on the way down the gully. 9 1/2 hours car to car with bikes for the approach and several breaks along the hike as well as 30 minutes on the summit.
