Ascent Trip ReportGaining the summit from W side was easy. I really screwed up the descent. I believe I ended up going too far south down a gully and making some questionable sketchy downclimb moves to reach a saddle between the main summit block and a gendarme to the south. Then from that saddle an even more questionable decision to dig out all the loose stuff where I was stemming and then downclimb into a shitty gully. I swear there must be an easier way more directly on the ridge because once I got down that gully, around the corner, and then turned uphill I found a more serviceable path.
