I wish that I'd checked out this page earlier. I tried to climb the third class South Ridge today, and turned around when it got to be fifth class with extreme exposure. Thanks for reassuring me that I wasn't totally missing the obvious. The North East ridge route looked really nice, though if I'd had a rope and belay.
There was a ledge that descended along the west side of the summit cliffs that I didn't follow, though. It looked scary and like it probably pinched out. Has anyone seen if this is could work?
