Ascent Trip Report

From Cave ridge followed a rough trail south past the fork to Snoqualmie Mtn trail, and nearly stright up the north face. This trail is incredibly steep, and has 3 fairly large blowdowns over it. At the very summit there was what seemed like a battle between two colonies of ants, a very strange thing to witness.
