South Slopes from Hope PassPosted On:

From Hope Pass scramble up Class 2+/Easy Class 3 boulders and talus to the upper ridge. The bottom 2/3 or so of the slope is stable but the upper portion gets a bit looser. The summit ridge is a Class 2 hike. Ascending this would almost certainly be better than descending; it was super fast going up but would be incredibly tedious going down (say you were traversing from Vermilion or something). We continued on to Beattie Peak from here.
