Ascent Trip Report

Great day out with BOEALPS ICC Alpine 1
Did E Ridge then descended and did the top section of the S Face (the best part!)

Approach conditions were snowy, with a tricky moat to get on route for the E Face. We got on the rock at the wrong spot and had to climb a little vertical section to get to the ramp. The whole day was very hot and we should have brought more sunscreen for the reflected sunlight.

Others brought crampons/ice axe for the gully and didn't regret bringing them, but I didn't have them (1 hiking pole only) and was OK.

Road is closed ~1 mi from the trailhead due to washouts. The right turn on the trail is also at a washout so it's extra easy to miss - the sign is gone!
