Ascent Trip Report Spent over a week acclimatizing. left from base camp 12:30am. summit at 7am. and back down to Chukkung felt like forever.
long dusty trail, to rocky trail, some scrambling, past High camp to Crampon Point. Then the snow section, so happy to have the sun come up and be on the snow! cross the large crevasse on a ladder, actually four ladders tied together. Then up to the summit on fixed lines, very icy and steep.
