Ascent Trip Report

This was the worst failed attempt that I have ever had on any mountain in my life. My friend and I were planning to do the east ridge and left to go to the trailhead at 330am. We arrive at the trailhead and were not prepared with beta except what I could remember from a night climb I did on the east ridge months ago. To make a long and terrible story short. It was the northeast ridge trailhead that we were at and then 15 minutes into the trail my friend shares with me that his head is pounding n he doesn't feel good. On the way down in the dark I lost my phone. I had taken it out to look up some beta on the northeast ridge and it just fell out of my pocket. Phone stays in the brain of my pack from now on
