Ascent Trip Report

Climb was part of the Mountain Leadership Institute Alpine Instructor Course. After two days of rain, the weather broke and we were able to leave at 6:30 AM from Scout Lake. Climbed to approx. 9200 ft. on the North Ridge before turning back. One member of the party dropped his boot while changing his socks, and it fell approx. 1500 ft. onto the glacier. I roped up with Steven Ladish and Jared Wolcott and descended to retrieve the boot. Descended to camp without further incident.
