Ascent Trip Report

Since I had already been on the Dragontail ridge this fall (and hilariously missed going to the summit) I decided to take a more adventurous route. There was plenty of shwack to be had early on, and even a few steep icy sections in avalanche chutes. Once above treeline, the going was much more pleasant on wind compacted snow. Glissaded back down several sections, using ice axe to control speed. Garmin died near the end so GPX file is trimmed to ascent only.
