Fantastic winter climb...lots of exposed knife edge sections and ledges to traverse. I wouldn't really call this route 4th class especially in summer. In winter there may have been one 4th class move we did. Regardless, this was a fun climb!
Some good, solid 4th class action with great exposure near South Little Bear. After, the traverse held good 3rd class scrambling with equally good exposure. More snow than what we thought but a little spice is good!
