Ascent Trip Report

We left the sno-park near Mazama early Saturday morning, and after a full day of trail breaking reached a flat campsite just below a tarn. Sunday morning we gained the SE ridge in the trees, and followed the ridge for a ways, pitching out one 4th class rock section. There were tons of gnarly cornices to watch out for. Our progress was too slow in the deep snow on the ridge, and we had to bail out short of the summit. Hopefully we can return soon and bag a winter ascent.
