Ascent Trip ReportStan, Steve, John and I met in North Bend at 4:30am and headed for the Ingalls TH. The plan was to climb Stuart via the West Ridge. We carried bivy gear knowing that many parties don't manage to finish the route in a day. We were on the trail at 6:40am. We made the summit 4:40pm. 10 hours from the car, thanks to a great topo. Back down to Ingalls Creek at 7:40pm via C.C.(13 hours from the car) and decided since we carried bivy gear up and over we might as well use it, Spent the night at the creek and hiked out in the morning. A great climb with an efficient team!
