Ascent Trip ReportImran Rahman and I bivyed at Shady Pass TH friday night and got started around 5:45AM the next morning. We ran/hiked in, chossed up Cardinal, traversed to Emerald on a bench around 7400' and went up two wrong gulleys before figuring out the beta. After summiting we dropped back into the basin and took a ramp to a ridge on Saska that took us directly to its summit. From the base of Saska it was a 14.5 mile haul to get back to the car. We finished just as it was getting too dark to run. 15.5 hours car to car
