Ascent Trip Report

Saw a guy run over by the snowcat that brings slackers up to the top of the ski area snowfield. Guy got a little squished, but not seriously hurt - but also ended his attempt for the day and the snowcat took him back down to the lodge. Also arrested three guys who fell attached to my rope - just above the south face crevasse - an eventful climb that I was happy to be done with! Not sure I like climbing with a bunch of strangers....
