Ascent Trip Report

We made it past the knife-edge ridge, and past the broader brown ridge above that. But then we encountered dangerously slippery ice above that, which we couldn't get past, so we turned back. I have no doubt whatsoever that we made the right decision. Too bad, because the weather was absolutely perfect today. I'll be back after a few more weeks of warm temperatures! The estimated elevation reach is just estimate. We didn't seem far below that first false summit when we turned back
