Ascent Trip Report

Day 1: approach (5am start); 20 miles to turnoff below Park Creek Pass. Reach camp at 415pm (22 miles). Make attempt at summit with limited daylight, ascended wrong lobe of Glacier due to being rushed and not consulting GPS despite not feeling like it was the right path. Descend to camp for night.
Day 2: 715am start, Reascend to Freemont Glacier and take correct route. Hogsback to rock was perfect; about a foot of hard, thick snice overlapping on the rock. 4th class scramble to meet class 3 standard route. Reach summit at 0900 spend an hour. Descend to camp, hike back to Tricouni camp (8 miles from car) since I'd get better sleep outside than spending 2ish more hours hiking to reach the car and get crap sleep in the car.
Day 3: hike the 8 miles to the car in a bit under 2.5 hours.
Three people seen past Neve camp (only 2 miles in).
90/100, 85 solo.
