Ascent Trip Report

I hiked the Bowl with Artski and Nicholas a little too late in the day. It was cooling off in the afternoon shade, and we dropped into Ozone just after it had re-frozen. The guys sent ice balls down on me as I led the way. I had to have them stop because I could hardly get any traction while that went on. We all ended up jump-turning our way down safely, but we feared a thousand foot slide could have happened with any mistake.
