Ascent Trip ReportShould have started earlier perhaps. Made it to the ridge at about 1pm after a few attempts up the headwall. No trail markings and full snow cover made the route finding a bit challenging. Just went off some photos in a book. Had a great time though and remember eating mac & cheese at the hut for Thanksgiving dinner the night before :)
Lots of mtn goats (dead and climbing up the sides of the gorge) along the river hike in and out. About 80 stream crossings each way!
