The few trip reports I found linking Clinton to Wheeler said hardly anything of the ridge except "it's pretty straight-forward". I would agree now that I've done it, but just be ready for some class 3 moves going south from Wheeler's saddle to the first ridge bump. Nothing crazy (especially if you just did Wheeler). Then it really is straight-forward class 2 hiking without a ton of elevation loss/gain.

There's a big snowfield under Clinton's summit providing a great glissade down to a small lake for the hike out. Don't leave your axe behind, it's worth it! Also a drier route if you're about that.
