Ascent Trip Report

Climbed with Sarp and Paul via NE Ridge (Knife Edge) . Started at Capitol Lake at 7.30am. Summitted 11.45am. On the way down we ended up on a snow field that was frozen solid and it took us about an hour to kick steps. Probably not the smartest descent route. The knife edge was a lot of fun though. Talus climbing is not my favorite but overall this is a very good class 4 climb.
