Ascent Trip Report

Fantastic trip. Beautiful area. Forested approach trail was annoying. Boulder field wasn't nearly as bad as I had anticipated. Slabby scrambley drop off the ridge was probably the crux. Glacier was in good shape. Knife edge was well beaten in and mellow. Eggplant was a nice side excursion. Camped near the rocks about 7500. Found running water. Went with Adam, Brandon, Jason, Jackie, Katie, Megan, Nick, and Sarah.
