I think our ascent was off route a little (it’s on the right on the map below) but we still made it to the East Ledges with little problem. From there it was an easy scramble up the ledges to the ridge then up the ridge to the summit.

We had hoped to do the traverse to Navajo while we were up there but we had dawdled a little and were running out of time. We took a straighter line in the descent and made a little better time on the way down.
