Route: Chapin Pass to Chiquita-Ypsilon-Fairchild
Posted On: 2018-07-09, By: Bombay2Boulder
Info: Route is snow free. We stuck to the ridge on the descent after Ypsilon. Great class 3-class 4 scrambling. All the class 5 difficulties on the ridge proper can be easily by-passed. You can always take the route shown in description and avoid scrambling.

Info: Arrived at the trailhead at 6am, excellent conditions - low wind for most of the morning. Trail was in great condition, easy to follow all the way to Chiquita. Actually did Chapin last. Also easy to find the way between Chiquita and Ypsilon. Spectacular views the entire way, especially after leaving the trees! Old Fall River road also in great condition.
