Used up half my water before I made the E ridge, so I turned back. Good thing I did, cause I made a mistake retracing my steps, and had some additional bushwhacking back to the trailhead. Kebler/Ohio Pass area had awesome color!
The initial climb up the steep couloir is a tad tedious but the fun begins once you reach the ridge, and the views of course are amazing. Finding the talus slide at the base is a bit of a challenge because it's so narrow and the brush is so thick, but otherwise, it's pretty straightforward (at least with GPS). My Photos & Trip Report
Very challenging but very rewarding climb. Bushwacking to the base was easy once we found a network of excellent game trails. We scrambled up a spectacular granite bowl to the left of the main route. My partner was fairly sketched by the unrelenting steep terrain, so we were a bit too slow. I reached the last false summit, but had to make the hard decision to turn around, since a cloud was blowing in and thunder was rolling around the Beckwiths. Still, an amazing day on a stunning mountain!
