Ascent Trip Report

While doing an acclimatization hike, we encountered several rope teams that suffered serious injuries from falls high on the mountain. Thankfully there were enough of us to lower the climbers to an area where the helicopter could get them the next morning. Lots of broken ankles but fortunately everyone made it off the mountain.
