Last day of the 2005 Challenge. A bit harder than the Tyndall dayhike, though not as hard as Williamson. Trip Report.
Almost climbed this with the Sierra Challenge crew. I made it as far as the nearly-as-high false summit, 100 ft away.
I suspected that the slopes would be a class 2 slog, w/ the class 3 being the upper portion shared w/ the SW Ridge, and I was right! Since I wimped out on the final 100 ft traverse due to exposure, I'll have to come back, but next time I'll ascend the SW Ridge
Yeah, Miguel, what he said.
Climbed with the 2005 Sierra Challenge. Made the summit in 6.5h from the trailhead with Bob, Miguel, Michael, Steve, and Mark. Great day of hiking, weather was threatening all day long, but never stormed on us. The final ridge traverse was much more exposed than I had expected, but it made for a fun scramble.

Fun climb starting from Forrester pass and traversing over the small peak between Forrester and Ski Mountaineers pass, then up to the summit.
With Bill, Bob, Paul, and Susan. From camp at Shepherd pass to lake 3806m to the U notch was easy, then difficult route finding to the summit. Then on to Tyndall in the afternoon.
I remember trudging across Diamond Mesa to a nice climb.
