Ascent Trip Report

This started out as a recon trip for a future climb but once I got up on the glacier I decided to try climbing the lower southwest peak. However I didn't have either an ax or crampons. I couldn't see much snow on the route until I got around a lower peak but then realized that I wasn't going to be able to get near the summit. I got to 19,267 feet before I ran out of rocks to climb and there was too much snow.
