This time I had a camp reserved so I could take all day getting there. I knew the snow was gone so I could rock climb. I got to where the trail ended, which is where I had to turn around before. I started rock climbing and made it to the false summit. I still couldn’t see how to get all the way, curses.
NPS rates the area where I was climbing as Class 3.
Class 3: Scrambling with increased exposure. Handholds are necessary. A rope should be available for learning climbers, or if you just choose to use one that day, but is usually not required. Falls could easily be fatal.
