Anyone Tried the Echo Peaks in Yosemite? #57709 07/15/2020 2:44 AM

I would like to do some fun high altitude class 3 scrambling, but unfortunately I couldn't find much near me since I live in the Bay Area. So I looked around, and the Echo Peaks in Yosemite look pretty fun. It looks kind of exposed, but the rocks look solid. I've seen that it gets anywhere from a class 2 to a class 5, while most of the 9 peaks are a class 3. Has anyone scrambled up here? Any advice on how safe/fun it is?

I climbed #1-8 and Echo Ridge back in 1987. I climbed #6-8 again in 1990 and then hired Peter Croft to take me up #9 (and the SE Buttress on Cathedral Peak) several weeks later. The route we did on #9 was a little rotten. The others were all good rock. All were fun. Nearby Cockscomb and Unicorn are also worthwhile. And of course, Cathedral Peak is my favorite piece of rock anywhere.
