Looking back from first little peak along the ridge. We weren't sure how often we would want a rope and pro. As it turns out, we did the first section as two long pitches and then unroped for the ridge. We used the ropes again to climb the 5.7 OW crack that leads up to the North Summit. For roped climbing in the future, I would bring a small rack (BD #0.5 - #2, with maybe a second #2) and a bunch of slings. We ended up leaving slings to rap b/c we couldn't find the station at the North Summit, sorry for littering.  From the NE Ridge, we headed straight up to the end of the arete and the spectacular, but lower, "north" summit. This is not the real summit, but the beginning of the ridge traverse. As far as I get it, the actual NE Ridge traverses left along the NE face below this point and then crosses over to a fun 4th class ridge traverse.  “There is nothing worse than a sharp image of a fuzzy concept.” Ansel Adams  Climbing Walk on the Wild Side just before sunset. This is near the top of the first pitch.   Super Roof.
