Ascent Trip Report

West Ridge in the dark in a snow storm. Not planned very well I guess. Whole lot of fun though. The straight up corner to the summit goes at 5.6 or so. Be sure to wear your cordura. In finer weather there is an awesome 5.9 finger crack 60' left of the standard route to finish this climb. Although best done as a long weekend so you can kick back and enjoy, it is do able in a day. We did it CTC in <13 hours from Snow Creek parking lot.
