Camping the night before. I am wearing my new hat for the first time. Knit from my coworker, after the last one was stolen out of my car this summer.
We were following Dave McMurray's
trip report, and Andrew Nugara's scrambling book for this route. However Matt had noticed on google earth that the cliff bands were completely absent farther to the north than either of their ascent/decent lines from the southern end of the ridge.
