Ascent Trip Report

Year was estimated, never wrote down this attempt in my notes. Was in Durango with Ski and did a run down the Animas in rented IK's the day before. Ski was on the hike with me, but didn't try to climb the summit, thus it was a solo attempt. Approached via NE ridge starting near Coal Bank Hill (or just N), but turned back due to steepness and dicey footing (hard rock with small pebbles to slip on, no boulders to grip with hands). If another attempt is made, it will be from the south starting in Cascade Valley.
