Ascent Trip Report

Arrived on Thursday night planning to bike up closed FR 49 to the North Fork Sauk Trailhead, but I forgot my boots so I had to drive Levi's Jeep all the way back to Everett (and get detoured due to West 2 closure). Started Friday morning: biked to trailhead, hiked up trail and camped about 1/3 of the way to glacier gap from the ridge by White Pass. Woke up at 3:30am Saturday and summitted by 11am. Took a nap back at camp then packed up camp and moved to White Pass and in bed by 8:30pm. Woke up at 4:30am Sunday and hiked out to the bikes. Awesome bike ride down and only almost wrecked once.
