Ascent Trip ReportSouth bound Ptarmigan Traverse with Josh Lewis from LaConte Col. Easy class 2/3 up the NW face with one short but sketchy ball-bearing ledge at the start after a dirty gully. Tried to get Sentinel afterwards but conditions were too wet and loose. Wonderful view. Definitely coming back if I can.
