Ascent Trip Report

Oh dear, the last half of the path was covered in a glaze of water ice, enough to make you slip many times while barebooting, and not thick or consistent enough to enable easy cramponing. When faced with the rockier portions, I had to resort to bushwacking plenty of times. The summit was also viewless, making this a pretty miserable trip.
