Ascent Trip Report

Following a few days of peak bagging in the Tantalus, Greg and I headed over to a camp on Brohm Ridge, under Dalton Dome (just on the edge of the moraine - no bugs and great views, especially at sunset). The next morning we ascended the NE Face (Warren Glacier) route on Garibaldi - about 40deg snow for most of the face, with the exception of a 7m vertical step to clear the large 'schrund. Descent was by the same route. Had a nice rest at camp in the afternoon and then headed over to bag the Sphinx the next day.
