Ascent Trip Report

We went up and over Longs Pass and down towards Ingalls Creek before it got so dark that we had to stop. After a restless night in camp we decided that we just didn't have the energy for the 6000 feet of gain- much of it on scree- that it would've taken to do Stuart and go out on this day. We'll be back.
