Ascent Trip ReportAscended this from Matterhorn Ridge during a 40+ mile backpacking trip.
This peak was more fun than the Matterhorn. Seems like there is some slight mandatory class 2 to get to the summit, but we opted to do some extra scrambling to make it more fun.
The descent down to Ice Lake was very fast plunge stepping down a big scree field that can be seen from the lake.
