Climbed "West Pearl" (aka "Oyster") along with Pearl from the Pearl Pass Road staring around 10k in Castle Creek. Connecting ridge wasn't too bad, some loose parts but not to difficult. Descend the north slopes (loose in places) back to the road and out.

added-on "west pearl" after a gentle snow climb on pearl mountain. the connecting ridge between the two was pretty straight forward even with the quickly warming snow leading to some nasty postholing around rock outcropping.
