Ascent Trip Report

Left directly from work on Wednesday to meet Graham; hiked up to Russett Lake in about 2.5 hours via Fitzsimmonds; slept that night in BCMC cabin - no-one else there except the mice :) Started at 0545 the next morning toward Overlord; while on talus slopes west of Fissile, we decided to continue up the NW side and join the NW ridge as low as possible; fairly easy ascent, but somewhat exposed and extremely loose in spots; signed register on summit and then descended via the SE ridge - loose, but easy - and then continued over to Whirlwind
