Ascent Trip Report

From Chasm Meadow, the Loft route looks fairly intimidating, but once on the slopes the route is easier than it looks. At the top of the slope a few minutes were required to find the ledge across the cliffs, but once the promenant cairn was found the route became clear. Aside from some scrambling required to get to the top of the Loft, the route was just steep and tiring. Once at the Loft, Meeker was attained in only about 20 minutes.
