Ascent Trip Report

Took cab from Kelly's place with Shauna(wife)to TeleferiQo then Kelly and I headed up @1030 much like nearly 2 years ago. Got to the traverse over to the scree slope and weather turned ugly. A single main trail very hard to find. Headed up along north side the slope and after the 4th hail shower of progressively larger stones (hurt) we turned back.At lift to meet Shauna at 1420 just as the clouds and rain came.
