Climb up Markhor Peak, follow narrow ridge to Needle Peak, descend.
Generally speaking, the route is quite long, has lots of class 3 and class 4, and some easy 5, with lots of exposure.
I haven't done this route this early in the year, and it's a big snow year, so there's a good chance we'll have some pretty "variable" conditions
