Ascent Trip Report

Successful ascent via popular west ridge route. Departed from camp at saddle above Misty Moon lake at 7:15 a.m. and summited at 10:45. Route is straightforward and involves a lot of boulder scrambling. This is not an especially aesthetic climb, though the views are spectacular from the summit.

An early departure is key to avoid getting caught in afternoon thunderstorms, as wet rock could make for an unpleasant descent.
