I believe Powell-Thatchtop ridge is solid scrambling, up to class 4 perhaps.
Some rise, some fall, some climb to get to terrapin

Going up LIttle Matterhorn in the morning, so I'll let you know how it is. And next weekend I think I'm going up Donner Ridge on Ypsilon but don't know much about the route other than Foster's guide book says it's class 3. Anyone have any input on if that ridge is worth this list?

i thought this one was class 2 at most. people expecting a lot of Class 3 will probably be disappointed.


Except for the single move down climbing into the notch, I would agree. Still a very fun hike and one I would recommend (with traverse over and down Paiute) for someone looking for something a little spicier in the front range, but not too intimidating.
