Ascent Trip Report

I actually found our ascent via the normal route (northwest ridge) somewhat enjoyable (possibly because I had been tortured on Apache Peak the day prior, making anything look good by comparison). That said, as we were ascending we looked at the north ridge and couldn't see anything making it look significantly worse, so we (foolishly) attempted to descend that route, discarding Ken Jones' warning. DO NOT REPEAT THIS MISTAKE (unless you are a masochist)!
