Ellingwood Arete route: Man, this was fun. Lots of exposure. We did three roped pitches...one at the bottom....two at the top. There is a lot of class 4 with class 5 steps which you may want to rope up more often. I thought the descent was harder than the climb with tricky route finding. The general rule is to follow the cairns. Wear a helmet and marmot repellent.
