Ascent Trip Report

First ascent with Sean Green, Henry Chen, and Steve Andrews. It took over 2 hours to cut through the final 0.2 miles from the false summit on the south ridge. Moved the register to the true summit. Thanks to Asher Waxman for the beta. We came prepared for the worst and found it. On the way back, tried a shortcut down Calamity Canyon, but had to turn back at some dry falls without a rope.
