Ascent Trip Report

Started from the trailhead at 5pm. Made quick work of the 62 switchbacks and camped for the night at Crater Lake. Next morning was off and hiking by 6am. Decided to avoid Jerry Glacier by going over the pass to the east. Turned around due to time constraints. I had to meet up with a friend at 6pm at a campground near Washington Pass. At the base of the south face it was apparent that I had underestimated the time it would take for this climb. On the way back I crossed Jerry Glacier (which was very straight forward) and descending the normal way to Crater Lake.
