Ascent Trip Report

On ascent, went over the level west shoulder of Pk 8501, then tried to stay level, but the gullies were sharper and deeper than expected. On return, went low an extra 40-80 feet and west of that shoulder, and it was so much easier. In other words, follow Poulin's "western" track or Jones' track for the best route.
Currently, a helicopter is bringing up a crew to work on a new building on the summit.
