Ascent Trip Report

The approach via the North Lake trail was easy and uneventful. The scramble isn't bad, but some pretty loose areas. I initially tried climbing a south facing gully but ended up in class 5 terrain. I descended and
climbed around the south face to the East ridge where it was a simple walk up.
