Ascent Trip Report

This one goes down a wash, then up a series of ridges to the summit. It was very cold and windy on the summit, though it hadn't been to bad until that point. On the way down we took a slightly different route that was easier. I also enjoyed some "talus surfing" with Richard that got us way below the rest of the group very quickly. Fun trip, but I shouldn't have gone since I was fighting bronchitis, and this made it much worse.
