Ascent Trip ReportWeather was a bit crummy, but kept us cool. Left Climber's Bivouac and climbed up along Monitor Ridge through the clouds and drizzle until the top. Got above the clouds at the summit for about 30 minutes before they came back around and surrounded us. Glissaded about 2600 vertical feet, had to scramble back across 3 or 4 ridges to get back to the trail.
