Ascent Trip Report

via non-standard 5th class scrambling route up to ridge southwest of south peak, along ridge to south summit. scary free-solo, done in a day. Standard couloir to South Brother was impassible on lower sections on ascent or descent due to hazzard posed by under-snow streams. Probably would have been wiser to just not climb the mountain that day... I could have easily died and I didn't have the experience to do this on such poor quality rock.
