Ascent Trip Report

From car to Redoubt Camp. Set camp, traverse glacier to NE and up cl3-4 rock to east saddle. Dropped off ridge too early for nasty loose traverse then rise to proper east wall (don't drop left too early!). Low cl5 short pitch on right of wall under summit. Avoid lighter rock on left. Is hollow and dangerous. Gained flat spot above the short pitch and scramble cl3 to summit. Rapped Cl5 pitch and immediate traverse NE to the ridge (better than crappy way up). Back to camp at Redoubt Col
