Ascent Trip Report

Back up the ridge of torture on an intended 3 day traverse from Paul Peak trail head to West Side road via high route over North Mowich, Edmunds, South Mowich, and Puyallup Glaciers to climb Tokaloo Spire. Made it up to 6289 on day one, dropped down towards the tarn at 6050 to camp on dry ground. Started towards North Mowich at 6am day two, made it up about 6600 ft. on the glacier and decided to bag it because our "good weather day" went south fast. Reluctantly turned around and went back out the way we came in. Painful descent capped off by 1000 ft elevation gain at the very end of the trail, all in the rain. Dave, Leaf, Noel, Mark, Bill, Steve, and Walter.
