Nice annotation

FYI, it looks like the climbing crux of your route (green dots?), though fun, was not necessary. Where you turned right, if you took the chute to the left instead, it is just a short 50 degree headwall that pops you right up past those cliffs and onto the ridge, with a slog the rest of the way to the rat/catwalk. Significantly easier with no mixed climbing required, and you are just as close to the ridge crest, but on the left side.

Your variation looks like more fun, though :-)

Steepness

Did you actually measure the steepness of the slope, or it just appeared to be 50 - 55 degrees?

Re: Steepness

It was our judgement based on conditions of slope day on that day. Should of been there if you question it...
