Ascent Trip ReportCamped at Bird Creek Camp. In the morning we schwacked up beside Bird Creek by headlamp into the basin SE of Tupshin. Miraculously found water in the "creeklet" mentioned by Fletcher in his report. Climbed standard route on Tupshin following Klenke's beta from Summitpost. The class 4 bypass of the "5.hard" section was airy and loose, but the "5.4 crux" was pretty easy and with minimal exposure. We didn't see much point in protecting the climbing in this garbage rock but we made 5 raps to get down. The raps are set up for a 60m rope. One and done peak.
