Ascent Trip Report

took tumble descending ledges between maintenance road switchbacks within minutes of ski resort and the day's jam fest to the tune of six forehead stiches, poor judgement related to overconfident fatigue, walking wounded with friend to security and nurse's station, thank you so very much, falling felt like a bloody goner.
