Ascent Trip Report

DPS trip led by the Bowmans. Awesome climb. The going was very steep heading up the false summit, and steeper still on the south ridge. I loved every second of it. The summit register had pages back to 1959 - pretty cool. We came down the SW Wash, which is the normal route up. Diana twisted her ankle a bit, but walked out no problem. Overall, an excellent hike with some awesome exposure on the south ridge.
