Ascent Trip Report

Late start, variable snow conditions, route finding, and running out of daylight conspired against us. Went up road then trail towards Lake Blethen, left trail at about 2900' after third stream crossing. Crossed Quartz Creek about 2550', climbed south towards basin between Quartz and Bessequartz. Poor visibility affected routefinding
