Many options just prior to the summit, class 2 through 4. Short hike and the PCT is at the south end of the upper parking lot.
From Echo Lakes - Becker, Talking Mtn, Pk 9155 and Ralston, returned via the PCT. Traverse was a big slower going than I expected, was hoping to tag Cracked Crag too but ran out of time.
Ridge traverse from Echo Lake to Ralston tagging Becker and Talking Mountain in the process
Pics and commentary are here.
Up the ridge from Echo Lake. Sky was a menace with growing thunderheads. A simple class 2 scramble made more challenging by brush and class 3 ridge lines.
