Ascent Trip Report

We passed below the ladder pitch by mistake, then returned to find it. The bolt/hanger at 15 feet has been chopped. The first hanger available is at 30 feet. I would not descend the route without a rope on rappel, at least not in my mountaineering boots. A 60-meter rope was just right to reach the ground from the rappel station.
