Ascent Trip Report

Summited via the Inspiration Glacier route. Had great weather and fantastic clear views of Baker, Rainier, Glacier, Goode, Shuksan, etc.

Started at 5am and summited at noon. Left Summit at 1pm and back at the cars at 6:30pm. Route was in good shape and did not require any pro except for a few pickets on the summit ridge. A perfect day in the North Cascades.

Probably the last trip with the full SIG plus Steffanie, Jeff, and Jeremy.
