This is really a nice shot and answers a question I had about " chicken out ridge" .
Thanks Dean. Chicken Out Ridge really is third class scrambling with considerable exposure, but most of the rest of the climb is on trail. I found the amount and quality (good) of trail to be a little disappointing.
One thing I liked about the trail is that it doesn't mess around. It goes up, up, and away in a hurry. It doesn't meander over yinder or over yonder. In that respect, if you've got the stamina, you can get up the peak in pretty quick time. Better than 4/4 time, but not quite 2/4 time. Maybe 11/8 time.
Sounds like my kind of trail-er climb! The clouds really grabbed me in the thumbnail. Nice!
Very nice clearly showing the trail up the summit block! I personally took to the right side of chicken out near the top and the other on the way down. I found the right (south) side more to my liking due to scrambling on solid rock with exposure rather than the rotten north side.
