Ascent Trip Report

The approach was horrible. Really bad, soft "poop" snow made travel slow going. The crux was getting past the notch near pineapple pass to get to the base of the climb.

The climb itself was great. Nice dry rock for the first few pitches. Only 1 other party on the route. We didn't finish the last pitch due to there being a fair bit of snow on the route. Will need to go back and finish this one once it's melted out, which should be soon.
