Ascent Trip Report

11 hour approach to bivy at 5600' below the Goode glacier
13 hour climb to bivy at 8900' on second day
16 hour day to top out and descend route and hike to N fork camp on the PCT
5 hour hike out on day 4

We travelled as two parties of two but were bottlenecked by a part of two above us. We were able to get onto the rock ridge high - at about 6800'. We did one pitch, then 2-3 long simulclimb pitches, then 5 pitches to the high bivy and two more to the summit itself. We did 3 rappels from the summit to the ledge traverse to the black tooth notch (which we belayed), then 3 rappels down from the notch to the scrambling terrain below (two of these rappels were short and one was ~60m)
