Ascent Trip Report

This ascent a fun challenge. Brought ice axe, crampons, and rock shoes just in case but none needed. A little bit of route finding in the gullies. I saw no cairns until the crux upper section. Although 4th class in places only really exposed in one section so not too bad. Last section of ridge a pain in that hard to routefind. Stayed left going up. Down easier than up but not really that much faster.
Enjoyed this hike.
