Ascent Trip Report

Camped at Lone Fir Campground just east of Washington pass with Walter and Jialin. Met Doug, Mike, Barton, and Erik at the hairpin at 6am and started hiking at 6:20am. Head up valley to pass then turn left and traverse over to bottom of "dirty gully". Scramble up dirty gully to base of climb.

We climbed the basic route which is 3 pitches of 5.3 or 5.4. Traversing along the ledge with 100's of feet of exposure was fun as was rapping off the top. Did two double rope raps which takes you back to the packs.

Great weather and an all-around fantastic day in the mountains.
