Ascent Trip Report

From our camp at 11,800, camped next to small tarns. We ascended the normal route, up the Southwest Face. There was much loose rock. The summit register dated back to 1924 and was filled with climbing luminaries. A great climb. With Samantha Olson and Remy Goglio.

The summit offers fantastic views. This peak is not climbed often.
