easy exposed partly rotten scrambling  Sucess!

Parked my car on the 120 directly east of the Sphinx. Scrambled up the slabs and cracks to the south face and made my way to the western col. It was windy. Attempted an obvious scrambling route directly east of the col but it eventually turned into 5.X climbing which I was wanting to avoid. Came back to the col and descended north, checking out the northwest face instead. Found a route that looked possible and managed to get to the top. Entire route was class 3 albeit exposed except the last crux move which was maybe class 4. Either way, an easy minute walk to the summit and nice views of Lee Vining Canyon. Couldn't find the summit register but didn't look very hard. Downclimbed back to the base of the northwest wall and walked clockwise back to my car. Good 2-3 hour adventure.
