Looks a little exposed;

Is this standard route or were you just getting a little crazy with your route finding? Looks like fun, this is at the top of my Washington list.

Re: Looks a little exposed;

We were heading up a gully towards the false summit when we saw cairns in different directions. "Gimpilator" and another man we met during the ascent both suggested the route seen in this photo, while I suggested to continue up the gully (which we later discovered was the correct route). We basically circled around a rock spire, encountering one-two small YDS Class IV sections, and ended up at the top of Ulrich's Couloir route. We descended the correct way, which was much more obvious during the descent than during the ascent. The standard route is not very exposed until the true summit.
