Well, that is what I thought this morning. Seems about 90% of the votes on mountainproject.com disagree. Need to get the news about the kids in sandals over there.
I climbed it once at midnight with basketball shoes and no headlamp when I was in my first year of High School.
Unless you go way right. I would not send someone confident on 4rth class on the 14'ers to solo Freeway, at least the left side. That also said, from what I've come across in other ranges, 14er's "4rth class" (overall) is quite soft compared to the rest of the world's description of 4rth class.
5.0 on middle to left and 4rth class to the right is what I've always thought? Maybe it's just me.
