Hello, we're attempting the Mountaineer's Route for the first time in late May and I'm considering some of the variations. Does anyone have any advice or photo/video from the alternate slab route
above Lower Boy Scout Lake? I haven't found much description except for "exposed class 3" but how much added risk is it really? Seems like it would be a more enjoyable way to go compared to the talus.
I have good experience and comfortable with slab and exposure, but also I don't want to start up this way and have to back track if it's not a good way to go.
