Ascent Trip Report

C2C. Had the summit to ourselves. Ran into several groups of climbers once we got back off the glacier on the descent.

Route is in great shape. We were able to stay on rock until approx 6100'. There's a boot pack trail on lookers left of the summit block; no moat getting onto the summit.
