Nice fun hike. The scrambling was interesting, but it was much better along the Cottonwood Ridge. I'll have to do this peak under snow conditions!
After lake Blanche I rounded to the steep talus on the North West side of the peak.
Decided for a little class 5 to the ridgeline. The knife-edge leading South to the summit was a little exposed. Had the summit to myself.
Not as high as the main Cottonwood ridge peaks, but still pretty tough. The ridge scramble back to the summit is difficult and exposed in spots. Approaching thunderstorm made my summit stay only about 3 minutes.
Just one move of 5.10, the rest is a lot easier
