Contact me for early signup if you were on one of my earlier failed attempts (early season attempts with lots of snow, haven't been there in summer yet)

Approach to ridge is very steep, with one section that has some fairly difficult (T4 or T5) scramble moves to get to the ridge.

Not sure if there is snow or not on the  way to the summit, so please bring crampons.

Bad weather will either cancel or look for a different destination.  Not a fun trip when wet.
