Ascent Trip Report

This one is beyond my capacity to climb without help. I hired guide Todd Passey, who came down from SLC to assist. I used aid (ascenders) on the toughest bit (which would probably have been 5.9 to 5.10a without them). My climbing topped out at 5.5 or 5.6 (but take the ratings with a grain of salt, as I am more a peakbagger than a rock climber).

Anyway, it is great to get this one under my belt. Thanks, Todd!
