Pic does not do it justice, but there's a very long (and high) cornice across the saddle to gain 13295. To get around it, would involve either cliff bands, or very loose, steep, rock...neither of which I was comfortable doing solo. I had an ice axe, but given the conditions of other cornices I've seen (separating from the ridge, deep cracks), I did not think it wise. Others I'm sure, would have had no issue with it, but I did.... Will go back and try 13295 from Jay521's TR route. The flowers were quite pretty though!
