Ascent Trip Report

Carrie stayed back when we got to the last scramble section of the climb, she sat below and watched as I went up. There was a large cornice that was blocking normal route at the very end, went to the very top of of the class 3 ridge just above it to make the summit. A little more difficult to descend that way but very do-able. Carrie and I heard the cornice come crashing down roughly 10 minutes after descending the bottom of the peak heading towards WCP 9.
