This was a scramble? Either you angled this very well or you have a ton of exposure on your scrambles. Looks class 5ish.

Josh, it was solid class 4. The snow made it considerably more difficult. Committing to the route was a tough call because we couldn't see just how much snow there was on the upper section of the route until we were came around the ridge ~100' below the hardest section. There were definitely a few moves that I did not feel totally comfortable making with the snow.

don't know why people don't comment more on pics like these... looks like some major pucker factor going on!

Thanks for your comment! Yeah, it got pretty interesting for a while. I actually had to put the camera away in my pack (as it was an SLR slung around my shoulder and kept swinging onto the rock at the worst moments) during the most pucker-filled section.

Some serious exposure! You've got balls of steel.
