SW Ridge/ Class 3 variation Date Climbed: Sep 28, 2012
Josh Lewis and diverted a little from the route in order to get more solid rock. Our variation did have some Class 3 elements in them. The gully was extremely loose so we pick the rock instead. A helmet is a good idea. Despite sprinkles views and larches were excellent.
Scrambled this enjoyable route with a buddy in 1h45m car-to-summit. Afterward, we scrambled up the sketchy class 4 Mauri Point. Next day, we climbed the "interesting" north ridge of Copper Point from Kangaroo Pass before traversing over to Pika Peak.
