Ascent Trip Report

Did Wittenberg and Cornell from Woodland Valley PA, heavy ice on Wittenberg and Cornell. Chute in col between wittenberg and cornell was completely iced up. Bungy Cord Rope was not very helpful, had to shimmy up with my back on one side and my feet on the other and gradually climbed up. Descent was much harder! Got wet and dirty!
Beautiful views from wittenberg and cloud cliff on cornell summit, great weather, had to take off fleece on descent (around 12-3), was just too nice out. Got sunburned a bit. ~9 miles, good blood-pumping times.
