Ascent Trip Report

Lower boulder field (4k) has melted out for the most part. Upper is under snow with small moats forming in places. High camp at 7500 ft. Had the summit around 5:30am the following day. Knife edge is in excellent shape, just enough of room across for two boots. One small and one medium size crevasse near the summit, easy to avoid.
