Typical scrambling on Mount...

Typical scrambling on Mount Wister's West Ridge (August 8, 2005). The rock is very solid and provides excellent scrambling.

Re: Sounds like sandbag

Could be - either that or I'm a terrible route finder. Alan sent me some guidebook information that called it 5.4. I think that is probably a little more accurate.

Re: Sounds like sandbag

Possibly. We downclimbed this ridge after climbing the NW Arete. We dropped far down the south side in a gully, then traversed over a couple more before hitting grassy slopes that we crossed to the saddle. We were on the south side the whole time, and not directly on the ridge. There are two prominant gullies that separate the three summits from each other. It was the western of the two. From your picture, you ascended very far to the east of where we came down. We dropped from the ridge much closer to Veiled Peak. Perhaps we were on the easier SW ridge, but it was difficult to identify two really distinct ridges.
