Notes: difficult for a class 2, tons of loose rock, struggled on the way up and down. this added significant time to my climb. Also the path over the rocky area was not clear because of slides. i expected to finish in 5.5 hours.... because going up was so rough, i decided to go down a little more to the right over the rocky area.... bad decision.. it was worse and there was a drop off that would have needed ropes...long day
