Ascent Trip Report

Headed up Torment Creek, then followed the ridge line above Moraine Lake to the west. Camped near Point 7252. In the morning, headed out at 7 AM following the ridge west. Got on the Inspiration Glacier near Point 7292. Very few crevasses. Some of us summited the Eggplant (Point 7733). Dropped some gear and joined the standard ascent route. Summited at 1 PM. Knife Edge was not very edgy. Took the standard route down Eldorado Creek back to the trailhead.
