Ascent Trip Report

After summitting Meeker Ridge via the Iron Gates route, we traversed the Meeker knife edge to Meeker's summit. Perfect weather minus the haze from the PNW fires. The knife edge was somewhat scary but very stable. Great footholds on the north side of the knife edge. Super fun route. After summitting, Jesse went on to do the radical slam and Andrea and I went down the Loft. Total time out around 9 hours.
