Ascent Trip Report

Early Saturday start to beat the crowds. Hit the trail at 5 am. Strange for a Saturday, we saw very few people. One other couple, and a solo climber.

Pro notes for next time: Cams from .4 to 2, maybe a pink and black or red tricam (though I didnt use any tricams) and BD chock nos 6 - 8 or 9. I had 8 alpine draws (4 doubles and 4 singles); I think at most I used 5 in any one pitch. Didn't bring a cordelette; had a BD triple instead and didn't use it. Didn't build any climbing anchors (clipped in to existing rap stations and in one place just strapped a tree w/ a double where I ended a pitch above a rap station).

Three pitches; four single rope raps. 60m rope.
