Ascent Trip Report

Top of Iroquois was intense. I had to belly flop on going up one rock wall right at the top. Then I saw people after me take a little go-around on to the vegetation to avoid said wall. I normally am pretty dedicated to staying off the alpine vegetation, but I have to admit for safely sake, I took the go-around path on my way down :(
