Ascent Trip Report

Worked around the glacier to a drainage that lead to the low pass between Bryon and Middle Glacier Peak. Followed the ridge to the false summit, then the summit proper.
There is an exposed crux section starting at around 3900 feet. The delicate exposed class 4 step is short, but would likely be a death fall. After the step, there is exposed scrambling on very loose rock until around 4,400ft where it eases up. Between the false summit and the true summit is a snow/glacier/ice. It would have been possible to cross without micro spikes, but they sure made it easier.
