Ascent Trip Report

Track shows what we felt is the most efficient route from Luna Col to East Fury except we went a bit too low around 6400 ft between the 7000 ft col and the lower glacier. On our return, we were a little higher, maybe 6500 ft and found some great ledges that sped things up a bit. We camped at 7400 below the steepest snow rib after hauling full packs up to the summit and back down, nice flat spots here with snow to melt for water. The Luna/Fury area may be the most beautiful place on Earth... Pics
