Ascent Trip Report

From the North summit, it's an easy walk across to the main summit.

On the return trip, we elected to avoid the north summit and skirt around to the east to catch the ridge directly. In normal conditions, it's probably an obvious choice, but we had to cross a couple non-trivial snow fields to do it.

Once on the ridge, we continued the "standard route" back to our vehicles.
