Ascent Trip Report

Ascended via the White Chuck Glacier/Disappointment Cleaver route in 3 days. On both nights I stayed at White Pass so the summit day was quite long. There was still lots of snow on the ground, so I didn't have to worry about crevasses/loose rock. Unfortunately, fog came in just below the summit so I missed out on many of the views. Overall an excellent multi-day climb!
