Ascent Trip ReportFinished Williamson early. No one wanted to join me for a Tyndall bonus, so Polychrome was the only other option for those feeling a little sprite.
The proper summit is on the northeast side, identified by cairns on top of a pile of rocks. If coming up from Shepherd Pass, do yourself a favor and skirt around the right side of the rocks on your way up, keeping on the coarse sand.
