Ascent Trip Report

Started from White River Campground. Trail clear of snow for first three kms than patchy snow. Interglacier is in great shape, made my way up quickly, throwing on traction about halfway up. Snow consolidated early but softened up as the day progressed. Descended via Mount Ruth to Sunrise Trail then began ascent to Second Burroughs.
