Ascent Trip ReportTook Easton Glacier route solo. Camped on the moraine at 6,500’ above “Sandy Camp”. Up at 2am, on the route at 2:35, summit at 5:16, back at the trailhead by 9:35am. The snow bridge over the bergschrund just under the Roman Wall is hanging in there, though that could change quickly. There were about 50-60 people heading for the summit as I was descending, and that coupled with rising afternoon temps could cause it to collapse.
