Ascent Trip Report

A 2 day trip with Josh and Joanna. Lots of up and down on the ridge make the journey hard. After finding the ridge to be quite icy, Joanna turned back at about 6,400'. Rex was crying because the rocks were hurting his pads so I had to stay behind at the final summit scramble. I must return.
