Generally, little has been said about the approach ramp to the Steck-Salathe', even though at least one highly skilled 5.11 leader has fallen to his death here. In this photo, Nurse Ratchet negotiates the most exposed section of the approach, a 5th class area of disintegrating grassy hummocks. We fixed our rope across this section the day before the climb to speed our approach the next morning. <br />

Not sure were this is, but this is definitly not the approach I took. Not sure how I got to P1, but I know there is a approach that is not as steep, exposed and full of vegetation.
