Ascent Trip Report

While following the "ranger cut-off" we ditched our packs a little ways down and went after this nice looking summit. However, when we got near the top, we found that ice axe and crampons were needed to continue - which we had left below. The summit block is a large rock flake, which looked very challenging from a distance - I'm not sure if we could have made it up that anyway in winter conditions.
