Ascent Trip Report

On day one, John and I backpacked from Silver Lake over Agnew Pass to Thousand Island Lake. On day two, we climbed up to North Glacier Pass, then dropped down to Lake Catherine and made our way over Lake 3377. Next, we climbed up the peak's west slope to the ridge, which we followed to the top. Although this route is easy from a technical standpoint (class 2), it sure is a long way around to get there! On day three, John and I backpacked out to the vehicle.
