5 out of 5 stars Stellar

One of my favorite summit climbs. Beautiful approach. Nice exposure on the second half of the climb. Pitched out the first pitch, simulclimbed about half, then 5 long pitches to the top. The last pitch was a slippery, wet, mud and snow-choked slog but the rest of the climing was excellent. Descent was a little tricky with high early July snow levels. Should have brought crampons.

5 out of 5 stars super cool 24 hours!

hiked in with a couple of friends, climbed it, and got home. all in all a super cool climb with lots of route finding on the approach and a lot of cool alpine features make this a must-do, but not for the faint of heart or those looking for a quick, easy approach cuz this doesnt have that! A beautiful climb in a very beautiful area, highly recommended!
