Ascent Trip Report

Our intention was to do Tyndall the morning of Day 3 when we planned to hike out from Shepherd Pass. Unfortunately, a night of howling wind, hail, thunder, lightning, and rain resulted in slippery slopes, thus canceling any Tyndall morning bid.

On our way back from Williamson the prior day, we scouted the north rib of Tyndall, and it looked to be in great shape.
