Ascent Trip Report

From Clark, I descended a few hundred feet to find dual cairns at the top of the descent gully to Luahna. Some time later, I made it to the worst side hill to date. Elevation is best maintained yet it's easier to trend slightly up or down due to the low viscosity of the choss.
Summit around 4:15 pm after a few very fun 4th class moves. Fun climbing once off the choss. Incredible views all around, particularly toward Clark and Glacier Peak.

Banged my leg pretty good on the return to camp well below Clark. Took a chunk out of my leg and had to disinfect and pack the would. Yay, first aid! Took a month to close, should've gotten stitches, got a nice scar instead (and no infection #neosporin).

Easy hike out the next morning.
