Ascent Trip Report

Leisurely two day to Whitman Crest. Camped at Meany Crest. Takeaway - packed very little water to Summerland, and then loaded up on water for trip to Meany Crest, not being sure what late September would mean for water. Didnt need to do that, plenty of water at Meany Crest, just a short jaunt away.

Glacier was broken up a bit, but it didn't seem crazy. Almost a direct shot up.

Timed the weather window perfectly.
