Compared to the pleasantly-rounded South Ridge, the Southeast Ridge has more of a knife-edged feel atop broken rock. The crux comes right away—a tower section that should be skirted on the North Side of the ridge. The terrain here is very steep and, although there are plenty of holds and small shelves, they are all sprinkled with broken rock. Once you regain the ridge, there is another tower at 11,300 feet. You can scramble straight up and over it or skirt around the the tower’s South Side.
