Ascent Trip Report

carried packs past spring after filling up with water (I only brought 2 liters but did well due to lots of snow along route up higher, which also impeded progress and made ice axe and gaiters useful); it would have been ideal to camp at spring, but we continued to the top of the ridge, dropped packs and traversed southern side of peak, then climbed 1000' up to top, where American Flag and weather station greeted us, then back to a windy, cold camp.
