Ascent Trip Report

Awesome climb, hot weather! We camped at the right hand camp and had dry spots with running water and a compost toilet -luxury! Glacier was easy peasy, no snow bridges or crossings but there are small cracks starting to open. Snow was soft, no crampons needed. The standard gully route is still filled with snow, we picked a route up the ridge just east of the gully. The rock there was snow free. We did 3 raps down the standard route then downclimbed about 100 feet of steep snow back to base of the summit block.
