Southeast Ridge from Father Dyer: Class 2. Somewhat loose and potentially exposed in spots, but all avoidable.

Southwest Ridge to Pacific Peak: Class 2. Loose. A lot of elevation loss to the saddle. If it doesn't look easy pick another line, especially going up or down the bump between Crystal and Pacific. Nothing on this section should be harder than Class 2.

Northeast Ridge to Peak 10: Also Class 2 and loose. I did a lot of sidehilling just below the ridge crest en route to Peak 10 instead of staying on the ridge crest itself. It may or may not have been easier, but it's not like it was hard, really, just kind of tedious. Once again a significant loss of elevation en route.
