Climbed a chute on the north side of saddle between Hale and Young. Lots of loose scree. In my notebook I wrote that it was probably class 3. I ripped out the crotch of my jeans during one long stemming move. Yes, there was 'exposure'. I continued on to summit Mt. Young and the un-named peak to the west.
Solo day hike over Sakai Col and onto Mt Hale and Mt Young. Left the house in San Pedro at 1AM, began hiking shortly after 5AM, hit Hale about noon (after a nap along the way) and Young shortly afterwards, back at home by 11PM.
