Ascent Trip Report

One of the more fun climbs ever, from start to finish. Went up with Kari and Duncan. It was Kari's first time on rappel, which she did with ease, and the views from the summit were among the best I've ever seen. I led the crux pitch and since there was nowhere to build an anchor up top, had an exciting top-belay while Duncan and Kari climbed up. A five-star climb which I will definitely be repeating!
