Ascent Trip ReportI did Mount Stuart as a one-day climb, it took me almost 10hours, a difficult day in the heat. There was no snow on the route, so no need for the crampons & ice axe I carried. The scrambling moves required were not difficult or exposed for the most part, but there were a LOT of them, especially over the last few hundred metres of elevation. I went a bit off course on my route down, was following a sandy trail down a different couloir that was taking me away from my ascent route and would give me a longer hike. I managed to traverse across some steep terrain to rejoin my route up in the Cascadian Couloir - if you follow my GPS file make sure you stay right on your descent.
