Ascent Trip ReportWe made our own route up this day. We came up a big couloir from the east/southeast side up, then traversed north over some ribs to find a way up to the summit ridge. It wasn't too easy to find a reasonable way to the ridge and ADLP decided to sit it out. After trying a bunch of ways, I did find my way up. I made my way toward what I thought was the summit, but it turned out the summit was still another 20 minutes further of class 2. Since ADLP had been waiting a while in the cold, I went back so she wouldn't worry (or freeze).
