Ascent Trip Report

Went to the east side and spent the night. Climbed southwest up into a hanging valley. From the straight up the large heading generally up a northwest facing couloir and then the northwest face. Summitted the northeast hump and then over to the summit of Peale. The talus was super dangerous, but if you stayed on the bigger blocks it was fairly safe.
