Ascent Trip Report

We attempted this mountain during a storm in order to test gear and our skill level. Climbing this mountain in blizzard like conditions with loose gravel under the snow and steep slopes made this attempt very challenging. We took a wrong turn and lost an hour which is most likely why we didn't summit.
