Ascent Trip Report

This was my second ascent (same route) so I had a great feel for what was to come. As stated in my earlier report the route is relatively straightforward, but due to some distance on challenging terrain at elevations over 13,000, this is a very demanding hike.

Since my last ascent of Cloudripper, I have visited hundreds more peaks. This still ranks as the best view of any summit I've seen.
