Ascent Trip Report

A fantastic peak I will most likely not be repeating by this route. Bushwhacking was alright on the way up, but the descent was a routefinding nightmare of cliff-outs and steep soily slopes. The snow was fine up high. A fun summit ridge climb leads to one of the best views I have seen in the lower 48. Proud to have conquered this one!
