Ascent Trip Report

This was an incredible trip with a lot of great scrambling. The route, especially down to the north, would have been difficult to follow with intermittent cairns, if not for great leadership of Harlan Stockman. Despite fewer than 2,000 feet of elevation difference between the top and bottom, frequent ups and downs added considerably to that figure.
