Ascent Trip Report

Hiked in to bivy spot and set up rope for rappel. Out of camp at 6am. Rope set up on wrong rappel route. Corrected problem but lost an hour. Problems with route finding but arrived at South saddle at 12:30. Did several 4th class downclimbs on way to saddle. Decided we didn't have enough time to go for the summit and get back to our bivy before dark. Also, mis-calculated the amount of fluids which would be necessary to complete the climb so we were dangerously short for the hike back out the next day. No water = nothing to eat = poor performance. Would try this again as a two day effort over and back. Cool hike and climb. Probably only seen ~50 ascents.
