Beautiful clear day for a solo climb. Didn't encounter anybody, but could hear the party climbing on Big Kangaroo. Had the company of a curious mountain goat that followed me up and then down. Appeared that my ascent was the first of 2016 judging by the summit register. The previous signing was from October 2015. Scrambled up the southwest ridge from Kangaroo Pass. There was still significant snow below the pass, ice axe recommended. Snow made for beautiful scenery, but I had a regret that I wasn't there in early autumn when all the larch would be golden, which would be incredible.  Lots of dangerous loose scree and rocks in the upper gully, recommend helmet if more than one person in a party. Class 3 scramble.
