Ascent Trip Report

From the NW Basin, Richard Turner left our skis on the "dome" and booted with single ice axes up a couloir leading th ethe upper NE ridge. After going over the top we began descending the NW ridge until stopped by the notch. There we rappelled back into the basin and skied flat light (poorly) out.
