Ascent Trip Report

Left the summit of Upper Wolfjaw, descending into the col between the two peaks. Found the tall ladder at the start of the ascent to Armstrong from the col half buried in snow! Reached the summit at 6pm. Ate dinner on summit, then started down via Beaver Meadow Falls trail. Got off the steep part before the sun went down. Refilled water at first water crossing. Completed 18 hour hike in the dark with only a single wind up flashlight between the two of us.
