Ascent Trip Report

- within 100 vertical feet of the summit ridge...had to turn back as the snow covered scree slope was getting steeper and basically had running shoes on...didn't give me sound footing
- only one trekking pole with me and I was sliding around like crazy...unlikely I would have slid off of anything if I did slip...on this day discretion better part of valour...ridge itself was covered in snow and probably ice so I thought screw it
