Ascent Trip ReportLoose and chossy, but not nearly as bad as the Summitpost beta had made it seem. I never felt unsafe. I guess when expectations are really low, enjoyment is fairly high. The bushwacking wasn't bad as the brush stayed below knee-height. For the broad gully up at the start up east slope, I would highly recommend ascending on the right side where the ground is relatively compact and there's less sliding back. On the descent, follow the switchback use trail (on the left looking up) that is perfect for going down in plunge steps, skiing the scree. Approx. 6 hours moving time.
