Ascent Trip Report

From our Evolution Lake Camp, we ditched our sleep gear near Wanda Lake, took our food and went cross country from the JMT to climb the South Chute, goes at CL3. There was a lot of loose rock and rockfall in the chute and we all wore helmets.

Once out of the chute, a nice CL3 scramble over to the summit. Great views and glad this one is done!
