Ascent Trip Report

Did this one with Don T., Chris, Alan, Jon, and Isaac. I was the only one not to summit. I wimped out at the bottom of the summit pyramid, as this was my first real mountaineering peak in snow conditions. Isaac slipped and failed to self-arrest coming down the summit pyramid. He landed unhurt not far from where I was waiting. I wish I had done the last 300 feet to the summit.
