Ascent Trip Report

From our camp, we climbed the North ridge of McDuffie, with full packs. We stayed quite a bit below the ridge, in some CL3 and some CL4 climbing, and found a chute to the crest of the north ridge, and then followed the ridge to the summit. Afterwards, we went further south an additional 5 miles and 3000 feet of gain to climb Wheel Mountain, and then to our camp on the plateau just west of Rambaud pass.
