Ascent Trip Report

Late-ish season conditions. From cliff took the left hand side up one simul pitch on exposed blocky slabs, then ascended a few tiers of short ice steps alternating with steep snow to upper glacier. End ran a large crevasse near N Ridge of Stuart by walking across avy debris, then approached bergschrund on the left side. Chimney-scrambled a bus sized serac to get above bergschrund and into left side couloir. Steep snow reminiscent of Linclon. Tagged summit and descended Sherpa Glacier.
