Ascent Trip Report

Day trip via the Sulphide Glacier. The shannon ridge trail is in great shape, snow free for the most part. There's lingering snow around the National Park boundary near 5400 feet. Snow is pretty consistent once you get the ridge above Shannon's Ridge trail ends. The glacier is in great shape, no open bridges along the north east aspect. It was super busy in the summit pyramid, around 40 people trying to summit at once. Many were avoiding the gully and trying the ridge route. We chose the gully up and down and did't rappel and tried to climb quickly to avoid potential rock fall hazard from other parties. Rangers were out asking for permits and a group of 6 got some pep talk as I was resting near the rangers.
