Trip Report

The section of ridge between the summit of Nihahi and Compression is some of the best scrambling I've done in a while. It's also longer than it first appears (big surprise). With dark clouds threatening to rain on our parade we kept up the blistering pace and soon we were at the crux rock fin.
