Had trouble at begginning finding which way to reach bush line, almost gave up after having to down climb some scary parts. Once found line wasnt to bad. Coming down through the bush was surprisingly easy for me and took much less time. was solo so free climbed down no prob. Saw a few rappel anchors from bottom of bush line. Seems to me the best way to climb it is light with no pack from base of lion. Felt pretty great to be up there. a goal of many years.
