Good story behind this bivy... We started out the day before at the Ramona Falls Trailhead way down the mountain wanting a longer approach for some strange reason. We made it to the base of the Sandy Glacier that night, camped, and planned on waking up at midnight to finish the climb the following day. Despite our three man team having communication dialed, we neglected to appoint someone to set an alarm, so we awoke at sunrise, bumming that me missed our opportunity to send the route. We only had supplies for two days, but we decided to do some recon to help with a later ascent. As we got to the base of the headwall, nobody was ready to turn around, and it looked pretty solid despite a very warm day. So, we looked for a place to bivy, and this was our ONLY option on the entire west face.
