Ascent Trip Report

Collin and I set out early from Symmes Creek, after sleeping in the car. Ran into Alex who was supposed to meet another guy who no-showed (vehicle got stuck at wrong trailhead). The three of us made it up to Shepherd's Pass in about six hours, then set up camp and went for Tyndall in a light rain with thunder in the distance but no lightning nearby. North Rib was a fairly straightforward scramble over boulders. Up the rib, then veer for the notch at the top of the ridge line. The route looks more difficult from the pass then it really is. Descended to camp again. I was bonking the whole way and struggling, but was fine after dinner and some sleep for Williamson the next day.
