Ascent Trip Report

We didn't know the usual way up to this summit, so we just scrambled up the rocks from the west. We made it to just below the summit, but it wouldn't have taken a tough and exposed move to make it up onto the block from that side. I guess we were supposed to approach the summit from the east.
