Or is this the summit of Ingalls Peak? We visited both just to be sure
There were a couple parties on the south ridge when we were ready to descend, so we decided to take the alternate descent route described in the Mountaineers basic climbs guide
See that grumpy look on her face? That is because we are re-ascending the alternate descent route. I rapped to within 30 meters of the ground, only to discover that this descent route requires a double-rope rappel. Our guide book didn't mention that...
