North Chute to West Ridge Date Climbed: Sep 7, 2016
Splendid scrambling to chute and along ridge, sure didn't care for the steep loose scree in the upper section of the chute though. Terrific peak for viewing the colorful Convict area and pointy Rock Creek peaks.
Fun day hike up past Steelhead Lake to Stanford Col, and then up the East Ridge. Returned via the West Ridge, past Crocker Lake and back down McGee Canyon. Nice ridge traverse on a beautiful mountain. I am surprised this doesn't get climbed more often.
