North Ridge from Pk 12353 Date Climbed: Aug 16, 2016
Good Class 3 scrambling up 12353's east face and an easy walk over boulders then sand to top of notch. Not sure what the author's fuss was about getting across the notch and climbing to summit - super simple straight route across on relatively stable Class 3 rock. Easy day with a fun buddy!

Excellent climb with varied terrain, spectacular views. Saw a hawk being chased by dozens of swifts. Nearly fell off the exposed summit tower when I tried to take a self-portrait using my camera's timer.
