Ascent Trip Report

Trip Notes:

-Gargett mine is the last reliable water source. Depending on when you climb, sometimes water can be acquired from snowmelt in the snow gully or at other random locations

-Pro: Light alpine rack. We used .75-#2 BD cams & some alpine draws

-On descent, a 60m rope barely reaches the bottom of the chimney, but a mid-chimney rappel station is available

-We didn't find a summit registry
