Ascent Trip Report

3 day ascent with Pete and David. Approached via Thunder Creek and camped at the snow level after Skagit Queen campground. Approach shoes were an excellent choice for the well-maintained and flat approach hike.

Summit day was very long (16 hours) due to crossing the creek too soon. I'd recommend going at least until Thunder Basin before crossing over if a bushwack is desired to prevent difficult/slow ledge traversal
