Ascent Trip Report

I started from the trailhead at seven just before sunrise. I was at the top of Longs Pass within an hour, and within another 30 minutes left the Ingalls Creek trail to begin the climb. For the most part I didn't have issues following the route as there were plenty of cairns. There was plenty of scree for most of the climb, so I was just careful with foot placement. I arrived at the summit just after eleven. The views were amazing! I could see all of the Washington Volcanoes.
(I'm pretty sure I could see St. Helens even though it was pretty low on the horizon.) After catching my breath and taking several pictures I was on my way back down. There was only a small amount of snow left over from a couple of weeks ago, but not enough to worry about. I only had to step on the snow once or twice. All in all, it was a great day for a climb.
