Ascent Trip Report

Second successful climb, route in good condition, no views though due to thick haze. After leaving the gully, stay on the cairned east ridge instead of the equally popular west ridge. The east ridge is much more solid and quicker. after crossing the snowbound basin, climb up to the ridge, angling far to the right. Look for a trail just to the left of the gully.
