Elke Dratch on the East Ridge N Ten Mile Peak,Vail Pass area (5.1)

I first did this ridge in 2011 with Joe Kramarsic, David Nebel, and a rope. In August 2012 I went back with Elke Dratch and no rope. No problem at the crux, which is the only tricky move, everything else being standard Gore Range class 3 and 4. This move too is probably 4th class, maybe 5.1 since it is trickier than the rest (just below where Elke is). We did the full E ridge from the grassy slopes just W of the saddle with Deming to the summit.
