Ascent Trip Report

My third attempt - not raining however no wind gusts nor extreme Cradle weather. Whiteout at summit. Boulder scramble definitely challenging however a buddy system was needed at times. Bum slid on descent most of the exposed scramble. Typical... soon as we arrived back at Kitchen Hut at 2pm the summit was in full sunshine.
Think there was three false summits? The last "down" part before last "Up" scramble was a bit dicey for those with short legs!
