I took the ridgeline route that did have one class 4 move)

i found the scrambling was a lot easier because anything challenging(class 4) was on very solid rock with reasonable hand and/or footholds and anything loose was on easier terrain.
btw - the cascadian was not that bad at all if no one was above you.  the members of my group were using due care when loose rock was encountered, so i actually had fun.  on the other hand, the false summit area was very loose and i saw one person almost make a fatal mistake stepping where they shouldn't have.   had they been more experienced, they would not have done that.
i hope this helps.
good luck!

That's the concensus from the peakbaggers I've talked to that have been there.

Yeah, very nice scramble Jeff. up.gif I'm glad I don't have to gain that much elevation in such a short distance on most peaks, the ridge scramble was actually a rest break. It's hard pushing 200lb. uphill. That is a classic. hockeygrin.gif
