Headed over to Chipeta after Ouray's West Ridge. It looks and a loonng ways over there and it indeed is. Good weather is paramount. Route is pretty easy to follow...just follow the ridge. There are sparse trail segments here and there but nothing official. What few snow patches there are, can easily be avoided. There is quite a bit of up and down with various points. Sometimes I tried to say below the points to save some vert but I'm not really sure it was worth it on semi-loose talus side hilling. On ridge crest, rock is pretty solid up until the last little bit to Chipeta.
