Ascent Trip Report

A fast and light attempt up the Colman Demming route. Started at the trailhead about 10PM, hikes the Heliotrop Ridge in the dark to the tongue of the glacier about 6000 feet. Ran out of gas about 8500 feet and turned back with another party from Mountain Madness. My climbing partner "Little Unkle" made it. Will attenpt again on a 2-3 day trip. 7500 feet climbing a day is a bit beyond my current abilities (with return trip down).
