A great ridge climb, lots of snow, crampons on rock – we climbed the north Ridge – a sharp ridge that required committing to one of the sides of the ridge and traversing on the vertical rock face with Crampons and gloves. We didn’t summit but made it over 9000 feet elevation before we needed to turn back for day light. We will claim the North summit. Absolutely gorgeous views above spray lakes.
