Ascent Trip Report

Turned around at base of route, slow two groups of three ahead of us. Not wanting to hike in the dark my partner and I decided to turn around. While hiking back we noticed they down climbed and got off under the ice step pitch.

I theorize either it wasn't in or conditions weren't too great on the pitch causing them to turn back. Getting to the base of the route was steep and there was an ice layer. I recommend putting on crampons near the thumb tack and stashing snowshoes down there.
