The rocks on this slope were loose--even many of the big car-sized ones. I've had much better scrambles. Descended the south slope and that was only a little better. I went for the NE slope of Rafferty next, and thought that was significantly more fun (with better views too). The beginning of Rafferty's NE slope has some short class 3 options on solid slabs with big cracks and ledges. These slabs are easy and unexposed. You'll find them on climber's left, near the edge of the east ridge.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
