Ascent Trip Report

Avalanche danger is still high, and not enough time to go on a lengthy trek. So instead, I did a fun ridge line and Kings Throne this afternoon. I was trying to get above our nasty inversion for some awesome sunset pictures from above, but the inversion never lowered enough to where I would be able to. Tried my new approach boots out today, and they are freaking amazing!!!! I love this stuff....
