Piute Pass Trailhead. 8:45am. Destination: my 3rd ascent of Emerson's SE face.
Waterfall chimney at the start of Emerson's SE Face. We climbed up (4th class) just to the right of another chimney on the right. Thus, you don't have to do the waterfall chimney if you don't want to.
Climbed a short distance to the right of the waterfall chimney. This 4th class variation avoided the wet climbing in the chimney.
Gave Darija a quick belay for a short exposed step-around (just behind). Other than that we didn't rope up for any of the climbing. Climbing 4th class to the right of the waterfall chimney avoided any 5th class.
Back at the trailhead. 4:32pm. Total time (from/to trailhead): 7 hrs 47 mins. Car to car: 8 hrs 10 mins.
