Ascent Trip Report

Snow has melted a lot since my attempt in July. One day push from Cold Springs CG. First reached snow around 7500 ft. Stayed on S. Climb trail to 8500 where we finally took to the snow. Strapped on crampons just above Lunch Counter (9000') for the rest of the hike. Beautiful weather!
