Ascent Trip Report

Summited Gardner and North Gardner Peaks over Memorial Day weekend. Lots of others had the same idea. First tagged Gardner then walked the ridge to North Gardner. Limited snow left on the approach to Gardner though crossing some is still required. No snow on the ridge walk from Gardner to North Gardner. There is still quite a bit of snow in the basin on the direct approach to North Gardner from the meadow which made for a great glissade on the way back to camp!
