Ascent Trip Report

Decided to head up at 3pm after searching for pika in the rocky basin below the summit saddle. The peak hadn't been climbed since 2003. Getting up to the saddle is a steep scramble. The ascent up the overhanging razor ridge will get your adrenaline pumping. Can descend on a safer but very steep route on tight packed scree on the north side.
