Ascent Trip Report

Awesome trip! Spent 6 nights at Camp Schurman learning glacial travel and crevasse rescue. Definitely glad we planned lots of extra time. First summit attempt didn't work as a member of our party had to turn back, but we were able to make it the next day. Conditions on the Emmons glacier were great. Crevasses were easy to see and the snow was good.
