Lots of choices between 2nd and 5th, loose rock, rotten rock, and pieces of class 3-4 6 feet off the dirt. Better than the standard slog, but still a piece of crap.

Terrain was much more complicated than I expected. I'm not sure if I found Secor's 4th class, but the last push up the west side, which got us to 11700', certainly seemed to fit the bill. The descent down the 3rd class chute was OK-- but I can't believe this is ever a popular route for ascent -- that loose crap must be horrible.

My love and I raced up to tag Independence via North Ridge expecting something inticingly fun....mmmm, not really. Found North Ridge to be a scattered mess of piecing as much 3rd/4th class action together as we could. Ran across some exposed 5th but backed off due to my low desire to sustain any injury a week before a triathlon. Beautiful weather at summit; ugly trek/slide down the west face.
Been up there twice, no need to do it again....for about 30 years or so. :)
