Easy and rolling ridge from McNamee. Class 2 scree and talus the entire way, absolutely nothing worth writing home about.

Descending north to Wheeler on the other hand is a lot more involved. There's some Class 3, lots of steep terrain, some ledges to traverse on both east and west sides of the ridge, plenty of loose rock, you name it. I wasn't actually sure it would go! It does though. If you find yourself in incredibly exposed and/or difficult terrain backtrack and maybe try the other side of the ridge, especially going around bumps and towers. Often times one side of the ridge is steep and the other is more moderate and inviting.
