Ascent Trip Report

Started at 5 am, which in hindsight was too late to start. Made decent time to tree like and watched the sun rise. Finally got to the boulderfield where we were stopped last time because of snow, made it across the bouldberfield this time, my least favorite part of the whole trip. On the return home pulled my groin, and limped back to the car way late for our return made it home by 7 pm. After walking trough thunderstorms that started at the booulderfield and steady rain and sleet at Granite pass which lasted on and off till Chasm Lake pass cut-off.
