Ascent Trip Report

My partner and I took the standard Kautz route as a carryover from camp at the Castle. He hit the wall around 12k and started moving really slowly. We eventually made it to ~12k on the DC around dark. We scraped out some passable bivy spots in warm and calm weather and had a relaxing evening.
