Ascent Trip Report

This was an attempt on the main summit of Daniel, but while skinning a face near 6700 feet, my climbing partner lost her edge and slid a couple hundred feet. She was fine, but wasn't up for continuing on, so I went as far as the east summit before returning. Skiing was great on the upper face, with continuous snow all the way back down to Peggy's Pond. I'm very eager to get back and do the whole climb.
