Ascent Trip Report

After climbing Sentinel, decided to bag this guy. A quick scramble up from Polaris Pass accomplished that. Afterward, descended back into the West Fork and climbed to Little Frazier Lake. I planned on summiting Cusick Mountain the next day from Hawkins Pass, but the route looked dodgy and I was tired, so I bailed back down to the trailhead. A lovely trip, altogether.
