Ascent Trip Report

Climbed up one of the southwest ridges. Nice ledges at the lower section. Some post hole snow mid-mountain. Rock on the upper ridge was a little loose and eventually the black lichen got wet and slippery. Couldn't take the ridge directly to the summit due to exposed section near the top. Crossed a snow finger to the next ridge over. Descended the gully slightly to the west and the rejoined the ridge lower down. Climbed as part of Sprummer Rendez Vous with Adam, Brandon, Nick, Sarah, Jackie, and Katie.
