Ascent Trip Report

Very little snow this year. The traverse was half the size of normal according to Nick. Our weather was breezy with a misty cloud blowing over the summit when we got across the traverse. Cleared out when we were back at the Red Saddle for a perfect view. The next day the smoke from the forest fires in WA blew into Oregon, so we hit it about right.
