Ascent Trip ReportDay 1 - car to camp in White Chuck basin
12.5 miles, 8 1/2 hours 5200 ascent 1000 descent
Nice trail, no blowdowns, attacked by bees right before the big log bridge. 23 switchbacks to get to White Pass. Followed foam creek trail and ascended ridge, then into basin. Found some nice campsites above the large tarn in the White Chuck basin.
Day 2 - camp to summit
12.0 miles, 13 hours 6000 ascent/descent
Navigational issue early in the morning caused us to ascend the White Chuck glacier to the east, once back on route, relatively straightforward the rest of the way. Roped up to cross Gerdine Glacier, be careful of rockfall from above. May actually be better to not rope up here. Crossing on the Cool Glacier was slightly tricky, very frozen ice and a steep step to make, but otherwise ok. Zig-zagged around crevasses, generally headed west to the ridge, where we unroped and left the climbing gear behind. At this point the wind really picked up. Finally summit, in and out views, but very cold and windy. Way down was much faster, this time we skirted the base of the White Chuck, but ended up in some boot sucking mudholes.
6 hours camp to car
12.5 miles, 1000 ascent, 5200 descent
Avoided hornets by putting on gaitors and jacket.
Total 37 miles, 12,200 elevation gain
