Ascent Trip Report

Ingraham Direct route.

There was room in the hut at Camp Muir, so we opted for it instead of bivy bags and tents.

Not much more to add from other reports. I see Ingraham Direct was still used a couple weeks after we were there which surprised me. The ladders barely stretch across the crevasse crossings so it will not be much longer before parties will be diverted to Disappointment Cleaver.

Other than that I could not have asked for a better day to finally get up there.
