Ascent Trip ReportTrip 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
