Ascent Trip Report

A buddy of mine had us try to make a new route up Persindex to Index but I found the exposed and krumholtz covered traverse was too much for me so I opted for Persindex. Had a hell of a time negotiating down trees, first gen forest, devil's club and heather terraced by nasty wet cliffs on Persindex north face upon our return. Weather was sunny with snow beginning at 4,600'. Vegetable belays in-between. It got up to BW4 and I cannot fathom how the men of the past had the energy to log that whole hill-side. I am blasted just moving through. It was a bushwhack to remember!
