With Dow, ditto on comments. Dow is the man.
With Joe K, Kevin B. and Jason W. Weather on the ascent was quite questionable, but the dusting of snow did not affect the climb much. I highly recommend going fast and light with competent fit partners who can solo 4th and 5th class ridges. Way to slow to pitch it out if you are going to attempt the traverse and carry heavy packs up and over. We would have made it to the Tuzo col for the bivy if we did not have that exact problem. The descent of the east ridge involves quite a few raps and small climbing problems up several gendarmes. Enjoyed the trip at the end of the day, but don't be looking for bomber rock anywhere! She is a loose $%^#&! BYM
