Ascent Trip Report

Hiked in over Hinman from Necklace Valley trail. Was hoping to get Daniel from the North lobe of the Lynch glacier but the ice was too much for aluminum axe and micros so without the proper gear Dip Top seemed a fine consolation prize. Went up a moraine to a south facing gully that went at class 2. Broadened out for the final summit to easy talus. Some airy steps at the end but what a view!
