Ascent Trip Report

Ladder in great shape. Follow moraine as far as you can go - boot path starts traversing down until about 3/4 down and it becomes faint. Minor crevasses open with a few snow sketch snow bridges (easy to go around crevasse instead). Water source available on the way up to snow dome. Moat forming at base of N face route. Likely will be out or have major complications in the coming weeks if we continue to get heat.
Fun extras - we had a bear in camp at glacier meadows and saw 3 llamas on the trail heading out.
