Ascent Trip Report

Climbed from car Saturday and camped at the standard bivy (14 hours car to summit with previous knowledge from a failed attempt). Lots of loose rock going up the u-notch but otherwise better conditions. Placed no more than 3 pieces of protection per pitch, including clipping rappel anchors. Would climbing with no more than 3 cams (1", 0.75", and 0.4") and a yellow offset nut (or small set of medium nuts) if at all comfortable with 5.6 climbing. Long alpine draws would be preferred but aren't necessary since the pitches are relatively short. Fifth class portions of the climb were no more than 15' long and climbing in between was easy and protection was otherwise limited. Leave the climbing shoes at home. We forgot knives at camp. Lots of tat needs to be removed so a knife would be good. Many (most?) rappel stations lacked rings or biners so we left a few things behind.
