Ascent Trip Report

Went up the NW Gully. Fun climbing right off the bat for abate 1000' on good sticky Rock. Once in the bounder field basin, took it all the way past the 1000' line until it kicked us to the left ridge. Then scrambled up the ridge to the summit. Came down the s-west gully on loose rock and scree.

The NW gully up was a super fun route if you like to actually have to rock climb a little bit. Never did encounter the two cliff-outs where Lopez says he had to go west and the east (crux) around to get up the ridge. Musta been lower on the ridge while we were still in the boulder field basin working up higher.
