Our Triumph route
>>>>>>Our route on Triumph (NE Ridge, III 5.7) followed the red. I climbed it with Marshall Balick, Tom Unger, and Theodore Barnhart. We camped on the saddle at the mark point. The approach to there was a heinous six and half hour hike. The next morning, we got up and crossed the glacier to the climb. The route itself was great; easy ridge climbing with lots of simul-climbing and a knife-edge ridge that dropped off six or eight hundred feet down to the glaciers on either side. We summited at about 2pm, and were back at our camp on the col at six or seven. What a classic route!
