Ascent Trip Report

Another attempt at the Devil's Kitchen Headwall direct route. This time we got shut down just before we entered the chute. Arrived at chute pre dawn and ice was already pouring out of all headwall chutes.
We traversed over and gained the Hogsback, summited via the dog route climber's left, a nice little ice step there. Descended via the 1 o clock couloir and old chute.
