I definitely took the unnecessarily loose and dangerous route up from Box Canyon to Static and then followed the ridge to Richtofen before dropping down to the ridge between Box Canyon and Skeleton Gultch and then back in to Box Canyon. Fun route, except for the absurdly loose upper reached of Box Canyon, with great views.
Route Climbed: ascended South Ridge, descended East Ridge Date Climbed: July 11, 2004
This was the final summit of the day after bagging Tepee and Richthofen. I was a little worried about the east ridge especially after Roach described Tepee's north ridge as class two. And though the exposure was very sustained I found the scrambling very enjoyable.
