the ridge I was on really flowed so I ended up under the wall south east of the saddle. the bad part was that it was very brushy getting over to the saddle but didn't take too long. I came down the route that we took the last time. Round trip was 5 hours and 30 minutes hiking in,with a very long lunch on top.
I'll bet you preferred not climbing up through the snow and ice covered rock!
This isn't the highest point on the ridge, but has some of the nicest views. By the time one reaches the 2500m+ peak, the summits are a little rounded and one has to push through brush to get the best views.
Interesting climb away from the crowds.
Also climbed 1/15/10 with Richard N in snowy conditions. Found register added by Harlan S in 2005...no other entries
