West Ridge
The West Ridge route viewed from Bumblebee Pass as done by us. Pitch one possibly has one 5.6 move (right off the ground - i.e. belay #0) followed by mostly c. 5.4 climbing. Pitch two is again mostly low fifth class with the exception of pulling over a bulge (somewhat loose rocks, two or three 5.6 moves). Pitch three is 3rd or 4th class slab traverse. Pitch four is a 5.4 "staircase" despite its steep look as seen from belay #3. Fifth and final pitch is largely 3rd or 4th class including a scramble down a gravelly path to the notch between the false and true summits. All belays are on comfy ledges with good natural anchors. There's lots of freedom in choosing belay locations as the climb is very "ledgy".
