Ascent Trip Report

Encountered dangerous snow conditions as we hit the peak on a spring warming cycle. Snow did not freeze overnight, and sun was hitting the slope hard early in the morning.

The summer scramble route traversed right across the face, which was covered in snow. The face sat right above a rock band and had a shitload of wet slide debris all over the base of it. Leading us to believe that a rocky demise would await us if we set off one of those slides!
