Ascent Trip Report

Hiked with Justin Antranikan. 5am start from Lake Como on a cold windy morning. Lots of lakes on the way to the summit and a great trail all the way to the saddle. Made the summit by 7:15 in whiteout conditions, boo. By the time we got down to the saddle, the weather cleared up and then did the class 3 traverse over to Ellingwood Point.
