Ascent Trip Report

Great climb. No sleep during the bivi due to mosquitos. Got a later start then we wanted. At the bottom of the ramp, there was glacial ice, which was tricky to get over, but then nice climbing to the bottom of the triangular snowfield next to the Hotlum Headwall. Saw massive rockfall off Shastina.
