I traversed the full Mummy Range and thus did not climb down any route I climbed up. Keep that in mind when reading these Mummy Range conditions reports.

The view from the summit of Fairchild Mountain to Ypsilon Mountain is discouraging, as is the view from the saddle between Fairchild and Ypsilon. The down climb off Fairchild isn't all that bad, I don't think I found anything I would definitely call class 3. Lots of steep class 2 though. From the saddle Ypsilon is not climbable directly, probably even with a rope and protection. To reduce the difficulty as much as possible switchback north/northwest up the slopes near Ypsilon until you reach the ridge to your north, then class 2 talus hop to the summit.
