Ascent Trip Report

Needs new register canister.

Papers were loose in a ziploc bag with a big hole in it. Looks like it was previously stored in a glass jar, because there are broken remnants of a glass jar in a crack at the summit. I left it in some dried mago packaging I had on me that probably won't last too long. Old register that would would be sad to see lost to the elements.

Jigsaw Pass was pretty loose but still good fun, although it helped not to have anyone above or below me. Some sidehilling from top of the pass, although it's not steep or loose enough to make it unpleasant. Identifying Jigsaw Pass was significantly easier thanks to photos on SP, but still required some educated guessing and piecing it out.
