Ascent Trip Report

Crossed river via A-B-C points, see attached GPS track. No people entire day. The summit ridge was indeed narrow and indeed very exposed. Protected by running belay with 20m rope, two snow pickets and two long axes - hammer was really useful to bang those in hard snow. One snow bridge on the glacier was very soft, the pole just poked through it, but was easy to go around. 14 hours round trip. Summit ridge video here: https://youtu.be/RlLTiO3zpfE
